This year I think that I am going to try and read some books that I wouldn’t normally consider reading, books that are much talked about, books that make you look a bit intellectual on the bus, that sort of book.

At the moment I am working my way through Tolstoy’s War and Peace and so far after 16 days I have read 300 pages and have just finished the first volume.  By that reckoning it will take me about three months in total to finish the book, which I am totally okay with as it also gives me the chance to read other books as well.

After that I think I might try reading another much longer work over a similar period of time, but I am not sure which one to choose. It could be Don Quixote, Ulysses, Les Miserables, Clarissa etc.
