    Great titles, everyone! I've not read any of them. Looks like another exciting year of exploring the world of books.

    I'm starting off with Jonathan Franzen's Freedom. I read about half of it a few years ago, and gave up on it when I found myself hating all three main characters although I was taken by the writing and really wanted to like the book. However, I have more selish reasons for reading it. My current writing project is based on Sinclair Lewis's Main Street, the plots of all three books (Main Street, Freedom and mine) are similar enough I want to, on one hand, see successful examples of how to do it, and two, make sure I've not been "unduly inspired by" (i.e., be seen as riping off) Franzen.
