Something Positive: My Book Wishlist for 2017

In the wake of this HORRIFIC week, where we elected an evil tyrant to the highest office in the land, when we lost poet/songwriter Leonard Cohen and the original Man from UNCLE, Robert Vaughn, and when I had to battle a Crohns flare while taking barium for an abdominal CT scan, I believe that something positive is in order.
Because I am a bibliophile, I find my solace and my joy in books. So here's a list of books I will be hoping to find and read in the coming year (some hopefully in December for my birthday):
