Recommended Reading

yay! my first "i don't have anything interesting to say, but i still want to say it" post!

so here are some grood books i've recently read, or reread, as the case may be:

  • Moby Dick - herman melville

  • Where Angels Fear to Tread- e.m. forster

  • A Room With a View- e.m. forster

  • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea- jules verne (i haven't actually finished this yet, but it's good so far)

  • On Market Street- arnold and anita lobel (kids' alphabet book, but it's truly amazing)

  • The Wonderful O- james thurber

  • Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (and the rest of that "trilogy")- douglas adams

  • The Crows of Pearblossom- aldous huxley (who knew he wrote kids' books???)

  • The Princess Bride- william goldman (even better than the movie!)

  • The Merchant of Venice- william shakespeare (it's got cross-dressing, a guy who wants to cut out another guy's heart, and religious persecution! whats not to love!) (not that i condone any of those things)

  • The Doubtful Guest- edward gorey (again, truly amazing. not quite a kids' book, but about that length)
