Well, I have lots of lists of the books I'm interested to read at the moment. Last fall, for instance, I was interested in reading all extant Greek plays in my native Russian. Guess how many I actually read? Zero (Damn you, useless Latin obsession!) The only thing I managed to accomplish this fall is to listen to Tragedy, the Greeks, and Us. Quite an achievement, haha.
