In one of yesterday's posts I mentioned that in our weekend retreat with the Notting Hill Napoleons, we had come up with the reading list for the next year. And in last Friday's post, I had listed those being submitted by Claire and I. Well, I forgot to go ahead and give you the booklist the group decided on for 2013.
Of course, this all assumes we will still be able to afford the price of old books with the onset of Stage Two Obamanomics. And that may be a pretty bold assumption.
Anyhow, here's our plan.
January -- Adam Bede by George Eliot
February -- The President's Lady by Irving Stone
March -- The Emigrants by Vilhelm Moberg
April -- The Card by Arnold Bennett
May -- The Scapegoat by Daphne du Maurier
June -- Cimarron by Edna Ferber
July -- A Blaze of Glory by Jeff Shaara
August -- Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett
September -- Arc de Triomphe by Erich Maria Remarque
October -- The Bridges at Toko-Ri by James Michener
November -- Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
December -- The Magnificent Ambersons by Booth Tarkington
