Some tentative plans

Now that I'll be done with working on translating a story later today, I think it'll be safe to post these vague reviewing plans:

1.  Steven Erikson, The Crippled God - I should finish the book today and will write the review either tomorrow or early next week.

2.  Fyodor Doestoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov - early next week, 1-2 days after the Erikson.

3.  Joe Abercrombie, The Heroes - late next week.

4.  Johann Goethe, Faust, I & II - next weekend or early the week after.

5.  Roberto Bolaño, 2666 - I will be reading the Spanish original of this in the coming days, with the English-language review in the next 1-2 weeks.

6.  Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear - will start reading this next week; review 1-2 weeks from now.

7.  Zoran Živković, The Writer/The Book/The Reader - will finish reading this shortly; review in about two weeks.

8.  Aristotle, Politics & Poetics - within the next 2-3 weeks.

9.  Gustave Flaubert, Salammbô - Will read it in both French and English; review in 2-4 weeks.

And of course, there will be reviews of some of Shakespeare's tragedies, starting with Macbeth and King Lear, that I'll mix in sometime in the next few weeks, as I hope to finish his tragedies by the end of next month.

Hope some, if not all, of these titles (plus those in the poll I just posted) will interest readers.  Feel free to weigh in with your thoughts on these books or ask questions about their types, if you like.

Looking forward to your thoughts on The Brothers Karamazov. I rather enjoyed that book, even though I had to struggle through some of the parts.
