2014 Reading List

A friend of mine posted his reading list for the upcoming year, and I thought that was kind of a fun idea. It’s not something I’ve really done before. Sure, I have a pile of ‘to-read’ books, but I generally keep this physically small. And that pile is often added to by simply browsing at the bookstore and seeing a cover/reading a blurb that catches my eye. But there are some books I have that I definitely want to read this year, and others that I don’t but that I need to pick up sometime throughout the year and read.

With that in mind, the list below in no way represents a complete to-read list for 2014. I’ll definitely be adding to it (planning to visit Barnes & Noble today, actually), and I’d be very much interested any suggestions from you. So, what are you reading?
