A book a day

This is my project for the next four weeks: read a book a day six of seven days of the week and blog about my progress. These books will come from what was previously named the to read NOW or else I die list. "I" represents "my academic future" in that phrase, by the way. Ideally, I'll get more books from it read than I did all of last summer. I did not accomplish as much as I had wanted then. Of course, the difference between the books I'm about to read and certain ones from summer vacation (i.e., El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha) is that the ones for winter vacation have been strategically chosen. Their average length is much, much shorter.

The project starts today with Bakhtin.
