My desk and bedside tables are overflowing with books purchased, loaned, or handed off to me with the words “YOU MUST READ THIS” and I’m…well…having a hard time getting to all of them.
I am a history and literature teacher, so that complicates things.
But these books…they’re all staring me in the face and I NEED the time to read them all. Or finish them, as I’ve started quite a few and just got interrupted.
Titles currently in the queue:
Tanglewreck – Winterson
American Gods – Gaiman
Enclave – Aguire
The Red Pyramid – Riordan
Runemarks – Harris
The Knowledge: How to Rebuild Civilization in the Aftermath of a Cataclysm – Dartnell
Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy – Metaxas
Origin – Khoury
Daughter of Sand and Stone – Hawker
I should probably add To Kill a Mockingbird to the lineup, as I am teaching it this month so I am on another reread….Tanglewreck and The Red Pyramid are at the insistence of the nephews (and who can resist such a recommendation?), but the others….where do I even begin? Recommendations? Anyone? Bueller?
