Books for Me!

Hullo all! This community appeared on the LJ homepage just in time for me - I had just finished updating my Book List from 2011, and was grumbling that I'd only managed to finish 19 books - not as many as I'd intended! So this year I'll be cracking on with the challenge!

I've got some in-progress at the moment (in various states and locations), and got a load for Christmas, so my list at present is as follows:

To Read (or finish)!
Alice's Adventures Underground (handwritten facsimile edition) - Lewis Carroll (started and left at my parents')
The Hunting of the Snark (first edition facsimile) - Lewis Carroll
The Return of Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle
The Winter Book - Tove Jansson (started, short stories, so doing a bit at a time - about halfway through)
A Long, Long Sleep - Anna Sheehan (started as alternative to Alice)
David Copperfield - Charles Dickens

I think I'd like to document my thoughts on each book as well - I'm going to go back and add some little bits to last year's list with my thoughts on each one. You can see it here if you're interested!

I look forward to seeing some recommendations from y'all! Good luck!
