A 2013 Reading Check-Up

I’m baffled by this, but it’s already May, if you can believe it. I have yet to do a reading check-up to see how I’m doing on my resolutions for 2013, but now is as good a time as any. Here’s what I set out to do this year:
  • Read something old-school
  • Read something contemporary
  • Re-read a favorite
  • Finish (and most likely re-start) a “Did not finish”
  • And tackle at least one of the big boys

And here are the twelve and two-half volumes vanquished so far:

So, Read something old-school— I think both King Lear  and Don Quixote  qualify— check!

Read something contemporaryThe Orphan Master’s Son , The Paris Wife , Nemesis, and Leaving the Atocha Station  —I left nothing to chance on this one— check!

Re-read a favorite—Have not done this yet. Goose egg so far.  L

Finish (and most likely re-start) a “Did not finish”Babylon Revisited and Other Stories  got me over the line, but there will probably be others— check!

And tackle at least one of the big boys—If Quixote  doesn’t qualify, I don’t know what does. 640 Pages down, another 300 pages to go— almost  check.

Three and a half out of five aint bad for early May. How's your reading coming?
