Last summer I plowed through a good number of books. Now, I don’t remember what those books were, but believe you me, there were a lot of them. And that’s what counts, yeah?
This summer I wanted to do the same thing, but remember what they are this time. I started out with a focus on modern fiction because I’ll be taking some fiction courses at SPU next year. Also I want to write better, so I’m hoping that something will rub off on me!
The list so far:
Till We Have Faces by C. S. Lewis
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
bird by bird by Anne Lamott
Grace (Eventually) by Anne Lamott- audio book
The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis- FINALLY
The Poets Laureate Anthology
assorted poetry by Billy Collins and Tomas Tranströmer
assorted short stories by Flannery O’Connor, Ernest Hemingway, Breece D’J Pancake, &Steven Millhauser
and driving back and forth to work I’m listening to Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
Maybe I’ll post some specific thoughts on some of these, if I think I have anything valuable to say.
