Book lists - what to read?

When I read your blogs I always stumble into books that I feel I want to read. Considering all the books I already have, I feel I have to go through some of them, before I can start buying new ones. Not to forget which books I was interested in (yes, that happens all the time!) I have made a list of books that seems interesting to read.

Just today I read, at the blog "Pocketlover" (A blog in Swedish), how great the book Stoner by John Williams is. I went to Google and found a review by Julian Barnes in The Guardian who named it the book of 2013. Not bad for a book published in 1965! So this seems a must. Below is a list of books I think is worth reading, with no special order, just as they have popped up.

  1. My (great) public library in Washington, DC lets me put indefinite holds on books I want to read in the future. While this is not a book list as such, I can always activate my "hold" whenever I feel like reading a book that had caught my attention previously. A great system, and everything completely free of charge. I LOVE US PUBLIC LIBRARIES!
