What Are Your Must Reads For 2011?

From old books we've always meant to read and new books by favorite authors (maybe from our January must reads?) to books we weren't able to finish the first time and books we could read over and over again, our eyes are bigger than our brains when it comes to mental reading lists. But what books do you hope/plan/insist on making time for over the next 12 months?

I really enjoyed A.S. Byatt's The Children's Book, so now I have to backtrack and finally read Possession!

I just want to finish Anna Karenina. I read half of it two years ago and I think it's time I pick it up again. I'll have to restart though (bummer).

I WILL finish Dracula, dammit! A couple of books I've been meaning to read for awhile are Vanity Fair and Madame Bovary, which I now have on my new Kindle through their free classics archive, so this will be the year. dexaholic, Alicia Silverstone's book The Kind Diet has some delicious and pretty easy recipes. It's vegan, not vegetarian, but it has some very scrumptious stuff!

Nerd alert from an English major! Middlemarch (George Eliot), more Shakespeare (specifically the histories), and I've started trying to read the Bible all the way through. I'd like to finish it eventually -- it's actually really interesting in context of it being the source of so many literary references.

Becoming Vegetarian: The Complete Guide To Adopting A Healthy Vegetarian Diet by Vesanto Melina, Brenda Davis. I've been vegetarian for 10+ years, and it's high time I learned how to eat properly!

I really liked Great Expectations. I only have two specific ones right now, The Glass Bead Game by Hermann Hesse and The Elegant Universe, don't remember who it's by but it's pretty much string theory for people with little to no background in physics.
