    My list for the upcoming year. Doing the Breadth Reads again, mostly new categories though I am revisiting two of the ones I did last year.

    1. Get on with it already: A book that’s been on your TBR (to be read) list for over a year. Hermetech, by Storm Constantine

    2. Freebies: A book you (legally) obtained without paying for. The One Gold Slave, by Christian Kennedy (A giveaway from the author)

    3. Setting sail: A book taking place mostly or all on water. City of Fortune, by Roger Crowley (a history of Venice)

    4. I remember that!: A book about a historical event that took place in your lifetime. Where Wizards Stay Up Late, by Katie Hafner and Matthew Lyon (about the creation of the Internet)

    5. My hometown: A book by a local author. Reamde, by Neal Stephenson

    8. Bits and pieces: An anthology (poetry, short stories, whatever). Undead Worlds, A Reanimated Writers Anthology (Zombie stories)

    24. War is hell: A book about war, on the lines or the homefront, fiction or nonfiction. A Delicate Truth, by John Le Carr

    34. Who was that, again?: A book about a person you know little about. The Other Boleyn Girl, Philippa Gregory

    29. Keep up with the Joneses: A book by someone everyone else seems to have read but you have not. Twilight, by Stephanie Myers; Wicked, by Gregory Maguire (one of these, haven't decided yet)

    38. Coming to a theater near you: A book made into a major motion picture. Albert Nobbs, by George Moore

    48. The butler might have done it: A mystery. Antiques Swap, by Barbara Allen

    49. Pixies and Dryads and Elves, oh my!: A high fantasy. The Worm Ouroboros, by E. R. Eddison. That's as High Fantasy as it gets.
