My 2015 Reading List

I mentioned in my “2015 aspirations post” that I wanted to read more. As well as reading more, I wanted to read more consistently — in 2014 I read in fits and starts… burning through several short stories or a novel one week, then not picking up anything else for a month or two.

With my 2015 goal, I want to read at a steadier pace, as I think this will help me reach my target easier. In Goodreads I setup a target of 26 books in 2015, so one every two weeks on average1.

You’ll find my “Currently Reading/To-Read” list below, which I exported from Goodreads. This is just my initial list for this year, and includes more books than I need to reach 26 books read — in case I pick up the pace during days off, for example. It’s not a prescriptive list, in that I will add other books as they grab my interest. I’ve tried to mix fiction and nonfiction, and I’m adding in several “classics” which I’ve never got round to reading yet. I’m still confident I will manage to meet this goal in 2015, but that might change after a few months!

What’s on your reading list? Anything I think I should add to my own list?
