Book List

I used to read two books a month. Then I didn’t.

I used to write down the books I read. Then, well, I didn’t.

So this is an attempt to keep reading. Public humiliation has to work, right?

2015 (This year, I’m attempting a year of “classics” that I’ve never gotten around to reading, including in high school where I probably should have … but I’m sure I’ll mix in the regular junk, too)

Well, I guess I’d better get back to it …

    • I’ve heard about that site, but wasn’t sure I wanted to keep up the list on a different site. But I’ve heard good things about it, so I should give it a gander.

      Thanks for checking it out!

    • Poor Oscar. I kept trying to visualize what he looked like.

      I’m thinking of finishing off McCarthy’s Western trilogy this year. I read All the Pretty Horses, but not the other two. Have you?

  2. Recommendations? Well, not a graphic novel but I’m reading at the moment – David Berlinski’s The Devil’s Delusion. Though I haven’t finished it, it’s one of my favorite books. Also recommend James Sire -The Universe Next Door. Should be required reading for…everyone.
