Reading Plan for the Next Few Months

I have come up with an extended reading plan for the next few months. As always, I will assuredly deviate from it, but I do want to get through most of this by the end of next year. I say this realizing that the Vollmann book alone is a seven-volume, 3299-page tome.

Reading Plan (in alphabetical order by author):

some Beaumont and Fletcher
Bryson, Bill. A Short History of Nearly Everything
Garner, Bryan, and David Foster Wallace. Quack This Way: David Foster Wallace & Bryan A. Garner Talk Language and Writing
Gombrich, E.H. A Little History of the World
Howlett, Kevin. The Beatles: The BBC Archives
James, Henry. The Golden Bowl
Knausgaard. My Struggle, books 3-6
some John Le Carré
Marias, Javier. Your Face Tomorrow, vol. 2, 3
Peace, David. The Damned UTD and Red or Dead
some Philip Roth
Rothfuss, Patrick. The Slow Regard of Silent Things
William Shakespeare and Others: Collaborative Plays
some Zadie Smith (White Teeth, N/R, On Beauty, Changing My Mind)
Turow, Scott. Personal Injuries
Vollmann, William. Rising Up and Rising Down: Some Thoughts on Violence, Freedom and Urgent Means

plus rereads:
Austen, Jane. Sanditon
Calvino, Italo. If on a Winter's Night a Traveler
Doyle, Arthur Conan. Sherlock Holmes stories and novels
Gaddis, William. The Recognitions
Hemingway, Ernest. Sun Also Rises, Farewell to Arms
Homer. Odyssey (Pope translation)
Milton, John. Paradise Lost
Nabokov, Vladimir. Laughter in the Dark, The Enchanter, The Gift, Real Life of Sebastian Knight, The Eye
Pynchon, Thomas. Against the Day
Shakespeare, William, and John Fletcher. Two Noble Kinsmen
some Shakespeare from Oxford Original Spelling edition
Wallace, David Foster. Infinite Jest
