My plans about reading English books

Popularity 9Viewed 14068 times 2011-12-19 22:23 | Plans, about, Reading, English, books

In 2011, I planned to read through "the elment of style", "economist style", and several other style tool book. Yes, I read a lot. Reading through a book about sculpture was also in my plan. However, I stopped after read the first about 100 pages. I also planned to read through Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" trilogy. Yes, I finished it, and I also read several Isaac Asimov's short stories. Oh, nearly forgot that I listened over at least half of the audio books "Foundation" (BBC version) too.
From time to time, I always could find tons of excuses to walk away from my plan - or playing computer games, or tired after work, or reading short news reports, etc. hahahaa. Maybe I'm a lazybone.
 
Which English books would I read in 2012?
hehe, I have not decided yet.
