I'm a horrifically slow reader, so I won't hit 100, but I thought it might be fun anyway to keep track of my reading this year.

Some of these books are ones I'm teaching this semester for a course on Romanticism in Spanish literature (but still a joy to read, of course, since I can choose what to teach), and will be labeled as such.

So far:

January
1. Hyperion, by Dan Simmons
2. Don Juan Tenorio, by José Zorrilla (for teaching)

February
1. El estudiante de Salamanca, by José de Espronceda (for teaching)
2. Don Álvaro o la fuerza del sino, by Duque de Rivas (for teaching)

March
1. Wishful Drinking, by Carrie Fisher
2. No More Dirty Looks: The Truth About your Beauty Products and the Ultimate Guide to Safe and Clean Cosmetics, by Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt
3. El señor de Bembibre, by Enrique Gil y Carrasco (for teaching)
4. At Home: A Short History of Private Life, by Bill Bryson
5. The Most Human Human: What Talking with Computers Teaches Us About What It Means to Be Alive, by Brian Christian

April
1. The Dream of Reason: A History of Philosophy from the Greeks to the Renaissance, by Anthony Gottlieb
2. The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary, by Simon Winchester
3. Fall of Hyperion, by Dan Simmons
4. The Clockwork Universe: Isaac Newton, the Royal Society, and the Birth of the Modern World, by Edward Dolnick

May
1. In The Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives, by Steven Levy
