Reading List 2011

I have never really prepared a list of books to read in the coming year, but with the Kindle providing me so many free classics I couldn't help but get excited about reading. So far this year I have read seven books:

  1. Alice's Adventures In Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
  2. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
  3. Magician's Gambit by David Eddings
  4. Castle of Wizardry by David Eddings
  5. Enchanters End Game by David Eddings
  6. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
  7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I am currently reading:
  1. Dracula by Bram Stoker
  2. Echoing Silence: Thomas Merton on the Vocation of Writing
I made it about a quarter of the way through a thousand page collection of Arthur C. Clarke's short stories before I returned it to my dad. While not all classics, I have plans to read many more, many of which are on the Kindle. Here are a few on the to read list:
  1. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

  6. Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton
  7. The Praise of Folly by Desiderius Erasmus
  8. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  9. The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
  10. The People of the Mist by Henry Rider Haggard
  11. This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  12. Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne
  13. The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan
  14. The Art of War by Sunzi
  15. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

I am certain I will come across others, so I have left a little space on the list for more.
