Bout of Books Read-a-thon plan

I've decided that, for this read-a-thon, I'm going to work on finishing three books that I started in the summer and fall last year, and two books that I just started after Christmas:

Three to finish:
James Gaines, Evening in the Palace of Reason
Richard Russo, Straight Man
Joseph Frank, Dostoevsky:  Years of Ordeal 1850-1859

Two Christmas gifts:
James Shapiro, A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare:  1599
Thomas Bernhard, Correction
I've got about 450 pages combined for the three I want to finish, and could probably finish Correction as well.  If I can get half way through Shapiro's book by the end of the week, I'll be pleased with the start to 2016.

  1. I'm excited about Bout of Books 18. Best of luck to us both on meeting our reading goals. Let me know if I can help you with anything along the way.
    Happy page turning and happy New Year!
    Oh, and if you come across a 2017 debut author, please let me know! - J
