JANUARY REVEAL: RAK #1

What book is a MUST-READ for you in 2013?

Is it a classic you never got around to? Is it a popular book you've been on the wait-list for at the library?

I need to read, "Where'd you go, Bernadette?" - it's my book club selection for January.

I just started The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian and need to finish it. I have some other good ones listed in the Wish List of my Goodreads app.

I really want to re-read The Great Gatsby - I've read it several times before but with the movie coming out, I want to read it again

Laura, that is a great choice! One of my all-time favorite books.

I would love to also read The Grapes of Wrath again. I loved that the first time I read it.

Me too Diana! I read it in High School and really didn't think it would stick with me the way it did. I do need to read that one again.

Margarethe that is an awesome book!!! love it.

I actually would love to re read The Grapes of Wrath, so good.

I am sort of a book nerd. I love to read. I think that on my list this year must be The Electric Mechelangelo about a tattoo artist that falls in love with a woman who let's his lover tattoo her with all his designs. I do not have tattoo's but I think I will love this.

I would LOVE to read Anna Karenina! I've always wanted to read this and with the movie that just came out this year, I think I'd like to actually read the book, then see the movie. I love old classics!!!

I really don't watch much tv or movies, so my relaxation is scrapping, knitting/crocheting or reading during the cold months. I'm a big gardening nut during the nicer months. So it doesn't leave much time for tv

I LOVE LOVE to read - never have the time though, maybe that should be my new year's resolution! I want to finish the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson.

And I thought I was the only one! I find reading quite boring and usually fall asleep after about a page. Yes, it takes me MONTHS to finish a book at that rate! :D
