Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Okay, I'm going with a mix of breadth and depth. But mostly depth.

I'm leaving what I put with the Dante open, depending on mood, the needs of my writing, and how much time I have.

I am also adding two Scheduled Extra Credit Books -- the poetry book, because I want the option of reading it throughout the year without impacting the challenge.

Scheduled Extra Credit
Bits and Pieces: The Collected Poems of Theodore Roethke
Tag, You're It: The Light Between Oceans (I didn't ask them, but both Chris and oneblindmouse recommended it last year)

That's a bunch, and I hope I get through it.
