My 2018 Reading List

Last year I made a lofty and un-researched goal of reading 25 books; I didn’t get that far at all.  I wrote about my reading habits during the year and I don’t think I’ve really changed too much about them.   This year my goal is a lot more reasonable.  I’ve set my goal to 12 books for 2018, and I have a concrete list of what to read to get me started.

You see, I have many books that I’ve received as gifts that I intended to read but haven’t gotten to yet.  I keep adding more books.  This is a problem.  So, theoretically, I’ve got the books I’m going to read for 2018 and not going to add any more until I see some form of end in sight.

You can follow my reading progress over at Goodreads – that’s where I talk the most about books.  So, here’s the list of what I’m going to start the year reading; I have more on the shelf that I can add, but figured this was a good place to start.

  • From A Certain Point of View (Star Wars) – Currently reading this one; it’s a collection of short stories featuring side characters from A New Hope, in celebration of its 40th anniversary.
  • A History of the World in 12 Maps – this one caught my eye even though I don’t usually go for history books.  Looking forward to diving in.
  • Tunnels by Roderick Gordon
  • The Immortals (Olympus Bound #1) by Jordanna Max Brodsky
  • Informal Biography of Scrooge McDuck by Jack L. Chalker
  • True Canadian UFO Stories by John Robert Colombo
  • Blackout (Riley Covington #3) by Jason Elam
  • Gone (Gone #1) by Michael Grant
  • Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey

Like I said there are other books to be added, but those will definitely keep me busy for a long time for the first bit of summer.  I’ll share my thoughts when I can.
