    Oh wow, I reckon you might have been able to read one of these in the time it took you to type ’em all out!
    Let me know on GR when you read True History of the Kelly Gang, The Leopard and Tracks, (all on my TBR too) and I’ll try to read along with you:)

    Loads of variety there! I’m hoping to read some Tana French this year too, plus re-read the second and third volumes of the Scots Quair, since I re-read Sunset Song last year. Good luck with the challenge, and enjoy! 🙂

    Dagny,

    That’s an impressive list. I’ve read only a few of them. One overlap is Durrell’s _Justine_, which I will be reading, probably this month, for two of my own resolutions: read all of Durrell’s works and reduce my TBR.

    I’m not going to go beyond that and provide a list of books for the coming year, but will rely on passing my hand near Mount TBR and see which book leaps up into my hand.

    It looks like an enjoyable reading year for you.

    That’s an impressive list Dagny and one that gives you a lot of choices. I’m glad to see a lot of Steinbeck on there.

    It also reminds me that I still have to read Zola’s Paris—I can’t delay it much longer.

    Not to worry. Your Mount TBR is a mere ‘molehill’ compared to mine. LOL
