September Reading Goals

This is going to be a very, very hard month (or few months) at work, so I am going to be a bit broader in my goals than I have been in the past, with a full expectation that I will fall short. It is, as always, all about the striving:
  • 8 plays (52 Plays/52 Weeks project)
  • The Iliad (for work)
  • Challenges - there will be some overlap here, I hope
    • 2 books from the NYT Notable Challenge
    • 2 Australian books (Year of Down Under Challenge)
    • 2 award winners (Book Awards Challenge)
    • 2 books by unread authors (Unread Authors Challenge)
  • Reading Groups
    • The Woman Who Waited by Makine (Slaves of Golconda)
    • G. by Berger (Booker Prize)
    • We by Zamyatin (Books in Translation)
    • The Echo Maker by Powers (Pulitzer)
  • Empire Rising by Sam Barone (ARC)
  • 4 Graphic Novels (since I have returned to my huge pile from the library)
  • To finish from August
    • Gilgamesh by Joan London
    • Tales from Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin
Anything else I manage to read this month will just be gravy. It will be a miracle if I finish a fraction of these.

There is one more resolution I would like to take up this month, inspired by Nick Hornby's Polysyllabic Spree. I am going to attempt to start keeping track of the books I bring into my home (through gifts, buying, mooching, or my reckless, unbridled library usage), as well as those I actually read.
