For the next year I have planned to read a number of books I’ve been having on my list for a long time but never got around to actually give a go. I have to admit that I am not highly enthusiatic about most of them and my main goal is to broaden my horizon. But if I happen to find one or two writers I really like and want to read more, that would still be totally worth it even if the others end up disappointing.
- Baptism of Fire by Andrzej Sapkowski (1996)
- The Black Company by Glenn Cook (1984)
- Dark Crusade by Karl Wagner (1976)
- Defiler of Tombs by William King (2013)
- The Desert of Souls by Howard Jones (2011)
- The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan (1990)
- Glyphbinder by Eric Bakutis (2014)
- Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed (2012)
- Times of Contempt by Andrzej Sapkowski (1995)
- Under a Colder Sun by Greg James (2014)
- Waylander by David Gemmell (1986)
At about a book a month that should be pretty easy to accomplish. And look, only two of them are older than I am! I am not only reading stuff from when my parents were just born. Only mostly.
One thought on “Books to Read in 2016”
Some listening (dark room, not doing anything else type listening) ideas for you too:
Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Rick Wakeman), narrated by David Hemmings
War of the Worlds (Jeff Wayne) narrated by Richard Burton
Chilling stuff and great for getting the old adventure generating glands working. The narrators of both these are what make them work so well.
I think Hemmings reading voice was what Glass Dagger were striving for in The Journey of the Dunedan (another good listen).
