  2. Very excited about Down and Out in Paris and London, and Alice in Wonderland is a great pick for the children’s book. I might steal that one. I’ve been eyeing Les Miserables too. And No Name and 1Q84. Hell, all of them really…

    • It is a good list if I must say :-D A lot are books people have read this year that I’d picked up over the past couple of years and decided I HAD to push forward.
