Meme: Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read in 2011

The Top Ten Tuesdays meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Show your appreciation by clicking on the link and checking out some more reading resolutions on the other participating blogs.

This is actually more of an “I would like to finish” list than a resolution - I have stopped making those.

  • Douglas Adams: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. I like the Hitch-hiker’s Guide series, so I really should read this one and see if I like it as much.
  • R. Broby-Johansen: Krop og klær. Illustrated costume history, in Danish. It’s a subject I am interested in and I have had the book for several years, but for some reason never read it.
  • Charles Darwin: Voyage of the Beagle. Third attempt...
  • Amelia B. Edwards: A Thousand Miles up the Nile. I need to finish this one.
  • Neil Gaiman. Anansi Boys. Bought it soon after it came out and never read it, which is surprising because I like Gaiman's work.
  • Gregory Maguire:Wicked. Got it for my birthday years ago but never managed to work up the enthusiasm for reading it.
  • Mervyn Peake: Gormenghast. I read Titus Groan several years ago and started this one, but put it on the back-burner for some reason I have forgotten.
  • Terry Pratchett, Ian Stewart & Jack Cohen: The Science of Discworld III: Darwin's Watch. It has been waiting for too long to be read, considering the trouble I went through to get it (BookMooch with endless customs hassles).
  • Paul Scott: The Jewel in the Crown. It’s time I started reading the Raj Quartet. I loved the TV mini-series and I expect I will love the books as well.
  • More non-fiction in general. I have loads of interesting non-fiction books sitting on my shelves unread.

Wicked is also on my list...I've seen the play and want to compare :)
Darwin? That's cool. I hope you'll have fun with all your pics. I can not image Douglas Adams could ever fail.. ;")
