Reading List 2011

This year, I want to create and conquer a book list. In my earlier years, as if I were past them, I detested reading and would avoid it whenever possible. Thanks to a rigorous major that demanded me to face the daunting task of reading heaps in no time at all, I have learned to love it! Because it adds so much to my knowledge and perspective, I enjoy it. For this year’s book list, here are a few of the books that I want to reread or read for the first time:
The Lexus and the Olive Tree
Embers and Ashes
The Book of Mormon
The Holy Quran
Making Globalization Work
Fair Trade for All
Pride and Prejudice
Barriers to Democracy
Institutions and Ethnic Politics
Ethnic Conflict and Civic Life
Crime and Punishment
The Scarlet Letter
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
The Color Purple
The Crucible

If you can think of any other “must reads” for 2011, let me know and I will consider adding them to my list.


  1. Those to be added to 2012 list:
    A Raisin in the Sun
    Half the Sky
    War and Peace

  2. Queen Noor (2003) Leap of Faith: Memoirs of an Unexpected Life
