I am not going to set a goal of number of books to read in 2016. Rather, I am setting a goal of reading some large books during the coming year. I do not know how to factor them in time wise, so I will not set a number of books for the year. So far on my list I have the following books: 1. Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer, World War II as seen through the eyes of a German soldier. 2. Memoirs of the Second World War by Winston Churchill 3. David Crockett: the Lion of the West 4. Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu the classic Japanese classic written in the 11th century 5. Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky This is the beginning. I will add others during the year. What are your plans or goals?
