So, drivelling on, I've whittled down the list of books on the Dusty table. I'll be ransacking these babies at a rate of a little more than one a month. With you (plural). Hopefully.
July: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Díaz
August: Oblivion - David Foster Wallace
September: What We Talk About When We Talk About Love - Raymond Carver
October: The End of Mr Y - Scarlett Thomas
November: The City & The City - China Mieville
December: The Fortress of Solitude - Jonathan Lethem
These 6 books promise to be quality literature - "qualit lit" as the Americans say. The Junot Díaz and China Mieville ones have received tons of praise in recent months. All are highly recommended and you won't be wasting your time! I'm hoping 3 weeks for each, but we'll see how it goes. If you're up for joining in with reading and discussing even just one of these, that'd be sweet.
