Good luck and happy reading in 2008!
That said, I've pretty much resolved to stop listing the books I keep meaning to read, because I know I'm just gonna read on a whim, anyway.
My BIGGEST WISH, literally, is for Jeffrey Eugenides to come out with a new novel. Or a collection of short stories, but I'd prefer another wonderful novel. So, Mr. Eugenides, wherever you are these days, it's time. Wikipedia says he's teaching at Princeton, but a more updated source says: In the past few years he has been a Fellow of the Berliner Künstlerprogramm of the DAAD and of the American Academy in Berlin. Eugenides now lives in Berlin with his wife and daughter.
Incidentally, there's a new collection of love stories out called My Mistress's Sparrow is Dead, and it is EDITED by Jeffrey Eugenides. Boy, was that a tease. However, it's a very appealing compilation...
