I try to read at least 60 books a year and that hasn’t happened for a few years now. Another goal that has fallen short. This year I’ve only read 5 books and I usually read that many a month. It’s not that I’m not reading. I’ve spent most of time reading unpublished works, and no offense, I need some quality time with quality books.
This year I’d really like to catch up on some classic science fiction, especially considering I’m transitioning to writing this genre. My inspiration for selections is my hubby and 50 Essential Science Fiction Books. Here are my top 8 selections to read/reread first:
We already have all of these books except for The Left Hand of Darkness, and I’ve already read three of them: Contact, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and 2001: A Space Odyssey. I’m starting with A Wrinkle in Time because my son found the book in his closet a few days ago. After I found it on the essential Sci Fi list I kind of figured it’s essential I read it right away. I’ll review each of these books on the Minor Insanity Blog after I’ve read them.
