The Napoleons' 2013 Booklist

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
