Top Ten Things On My Bookish Bucket List

April 1, 2014 | No comments


The theme for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday at the Broke and the Bookish is Top Ten “Gateway” Books/Authors In My Reading Journey. I missed last week’s list, which was Top Ten Things On My Bookish Bucket List, so I’m doing that one instead.


1. Read 1000 books done!
1000 seemed like a good number to strive for, but maybe I should increase it to 2000 since I’ve already read over 1400 books.

2. Read all the works by Shakespeare.
I’ve only read three so far (Romeo and Juliet, The Winter’s Tale, and Othello) so this will probably take me a while.

3. Read all the novels by Charles Dickens
So far, I’ve read three (Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, and A Tale of Two Cities). I have all of Dickens’ books on my kindle, but they are just so intimidating that I never get around to reading them.

4. Have my own library
At the moment, I share an apartment with a friend, and we definitely don’t have any extra space for a library. So for the moment my library consists of two bookshelves, but someday – someday I will ha a large room filled with books from floor to ceiling.

5. Own hardback copies of all my favourite books
This one is an ongoing investment. I have several boxes with books in a storage room in Sweden and one shelf in my current home-mini-library with books to keep.


6. Read the books that are on my Kindle
There are several hundred books on my Kindle, and I’m adding new ones faster than I read the ones I already have on there. This year I’m trying very hard to not buy new e-books and read the ones I have already instead.

7. Read 12 books in Swedish, by Swedish authors
Only one read so far this year (Saker min son behöver veta om världen by Fredrik Backman), but I have several more in my reading pile that I’m hoping to read soon.

8. Read 25 books by Nordic authors
This year I’ve read one book by Henning Mankell (Faceless Killers) and I just started one by Håkan Nesser.

9. Reread old favourites
This year I want to reread the Harry Potter books, the Outlander series, and the Millennium series. Together, they are over 12000 pages so it will take me a while…

10. Read 10 books from my classic club list
I have already read two this year: Aesop’s Illustrated Fables and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

My complete book bucket list (i.e. reading plan) for this year can be found here.

What is on your bookish bucket list?
