Ive likewise left more than the normal quantity of books unread. But hey, the governmental election is in suspension– why not my stack of books, too
Of the books I had not check out in the past, William Kennedys Ironweed came the nearest to inspiring/moving me. Its also on the Modern Library list (no. 92), so, two-fer. I advise it, though not universally.
I also go over a couple of favorites from the list, Under the Volcano (no. 11) and Slaughterhouse-Five ( no. 18)
From mid-February through mid-April (much of lockdown in NYC), I ended up absolutely no books. And here in mid-October, I havent end up a book since mid-September. 4 months worth of not checking out minimize the odds of success
All in all, a quite dim year in my reading life. Ive checked out much more poetry than typical, which I believe has actually helped focus me.
Recalling at my reading-related goals, Ive done … not all that well. I wanted to read a couple of books on the Modern Librarys leading 100 novels list, and I wished to “discover brand-new books that inspire and move me.”.
I check out Lord of the Flies, no. 41 on the list. I enjoyed it, but it will not stick with me. I wish I d read it in school, like I was supposed to.
