A week or so ago, I asked everyone what they were reading. And now, with all your responses reviewed (and savored), I’m happy to announce that the official English Muse reading list on Amazon has been updated! It’s in no particular order and there are now more than 160 books on the list. But I think it reflects the breadth and depth of your interests. I feel very, very lucky to have such smart readers.

Many among us are Janeites, of course! But you’re also interested in a mix of modern literature, current affairs (like the treatment of women in the Middle East) and the gorgeous and colorful culture of India. My little graphic above — featuring model Karlie Kloss from the August 09 issue of French Vogue — includes a list of all the books on my nightstand at the moment.

My wish for you for this holiday is that you have plenty of time to read whatever you find interesting, beautiful and thought provoking.

Here’s our Amazon link: English Muse wishlist.
