Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.
Usually by this time, I've posted a whole bunch of complicated reading project plans for next year.
For 2016, I have only one plan. I am going to read (nearly) exclusively women authors.
I already have committed to read:
Tolkien's Lord of the Rings
Trollope's Palliser Novels
Sanderson's Mistborn series
All written by men.
This is a total of around 10 books. Since I read around 200 books per year, I figure this means that I will be reading 95% women authors. This ties in perfectly with my Women in Classic Literature project. I am also going to make a concerted effort to read 10% of books written by women of color (that's 20 books). I'd love some suggestions in the comments - I already have some in mind, but this is not an area of strength for me, so guidance would be vastly appreciated!
