2011 Reading Resolutions

Last year around this time, just for fun, I listed five books that I hoped to read in 2010. I ended up reading only one of them — The Bell by Iris Murdoch, which I loved. The other four remain on my to-read list, but I won’t repeat them on my 2011 list, which is below. If you have any New Year reading resolutions of your own, however modest or ambitious, I’d love to hear them in the comments below.

Ada, or Ardor by Nabokov
The Banquet Years by Roger Shattuck
The Emperor of Ice-Cream by Brian Moore
Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather
A Summons to Memphis by Peter Taylor
