Reading List for 2007

I'm going to use this post to keep track of the books I want to read during 2007. Suggestions are welcome!

Must Read
1. The Supper of the Lamb by Robert Farrar. My cousin and I are each going to read this by next Christmas, and we're going to each bring a dish from it to our Christmas Eve celebration.
2. A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. My cousin said it was really funny.
3. Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra. I bought this 900 page epic in India, and it's been sitting on my shelf shaming me ever since.

Might Read
1. Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens. I started this back in high school at the end of a long Dickens kick. The kick came to an end right in the middle of this book and I quit reading it.
2. Something by Edith Wharton, maybe Age of Innocence or The House of Mirth
3. Ramayana. This is a Hindu holy book that I bought in India. I liked the Mahabharata because of its warrior mentality and code of honor. But the Ramayana has sat on my shelf next to Sacred Games heaping yet more shame upon me.
4. The Education of Henry Adams by Henry Adams. Holly is reading a book about a guy who read that book (among other things!), and it sounds interesting.
