To Be Read Books 2013

On the First day of the Second month of the Brand New 2013, I have just realized that an entire month has passed by, with just one review being posted on the Scribbles of Soul!

I have always known that I spend much more time in procrastinating than actual blogging, but the score of one post a month is a bit too less even from the standards of sluggishness, I have come to accept.

So, in a sudden moment of enlightenment, I have decided to put some binders on my wandering free self, and prepare a list of To Be Read Books in 2013.

The books range from well known classics, including the collection of R.K. Narayan and Rabindranath Tagore, whom I really admire, to the lesser known titles, I happened to see on the shelves of my local library and instantly marked as next read or some appealing new books, I bought in a spur of moment, to some ambitious non-fiction ones, written by the greatest minds, I aspire to read!

The list is hardly exhaustive and in light of my impulsive, compulsive nature (at least, as far as my reading habits are concerned), there would be some involuntary additions, but still I would try to remain true to my goals.

So, for the sake of a little more discipline and order, here I go :

1. The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
2. Animal Farm by George Orwell
3. Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne
4. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
5. Scarlet letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
6. Home and World by Tagore
7. The Painter of Signs by R. K. Narayan

14. Mr. Sampath by R.K.Narayan
15. Billy Budd by Herman Melville
16. Kim by Rudyard Kipling
