But now I got a little Santa setback in my stockings.
In case you're wondering what non-list reading looms (though some are definitely list-worthy):
James Crumley, The Last Good Kiss (already devoured. so much fun)
John Lanchester, Mr Phillips (ditto, though a little slower. also more thought-provoking)
Charles Dickens, Nicholas Nickleby
Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, vol. 2
Jonathan Bernstein, Knickers in a Twist: A Dictionary of British Slang
Joseph von Eichendorff, Gedichte
Rudolf Eberhard, ed., Fritze Bollmann wollte angeln
Happy New Year, everyone!
