An Ambitious Year In Books

I almost never end up reading exactly what I set out to read, but I make these endless lists, anyway. It's hard to account for the things that get released later on, or the things you randomly discover on the shelf during a library trip, but having at least an "I'd like to read" list for the year is something I do consistently anyway.
