My To-Read List for the Rest of the Year

To Read PileMy current to-read list for the rest of 2013. I'd like to finish all of these by the end of 2013, if not sooner.

This doesn't preclude my adding a few more titles, or moving them around.

I've already started Words and Rules and have almost completed Sacre Bleu and A Collection of Essays by George Orwell. (I'm finding Sacre Bleu much less interesting than usual for Moore's books, but I'm determined to finish it…)

  • 11/22/63 by Stephen King
  • A Choice of Days by HL Mencken

(Update: As I finish books, I'll try to remember to come back and put a strikethrough on the title…)
