more to-do lists

lately, when i'm waiting for something (which happens reasonably often when you travel), i have been making lists of things i want to do. they are pretty far-reaching lists, but i figure that if i keep track, maybe i will be more effective at achieving them? and it's always nice to strike things off a list. so for now, here are some books i want to get down with.

tolstoy - anna karenina
william golding - the inheritors (i am reading this at the moment), lord of the flies
gabriel garcia marquez - love in the time of cholera, one hundred years of solitude
dostoevsky - notes from underground, crime and punishment
steinbeck - the grapes of wrath, of mice and men, the red pony
hemingway - the old man and the sea, for whom the bell tolls
hunter s. thompson - fear and loathing in las vegas
tim winton - cloud street
peter carey - oscar and lucinda
bukowski - factotum
james baldwin - giovanni's room
jay mcirney - bright lights big city
jonathan safran foer - everything is illuminated
d.h. lawrence - sons and lovers
yann martel - the life of pi
salman rushdie - fury, the satanic verses, midnight's children
nabokov - pale fire
henry miller - tropic of capricorn, tropic of cancer
toni morrison - beloved
