I just realized I’m on Spring Break and so it’s kind of perfect that this week I wanted to sort of drift away from Humanities Day. Not really because I’m going to talk about literature instead.
I’m currently reading “My Name is Mary Sutter” but that isn’t entirely true. I read the first few chapters and then got sucked into doing other things. But this goal is one I want to stick with, so I have to read at least one book a month from here on out.
I’m not much of a reader, but I’m not dumb. I’m just really picky. I’ll get into something and read an entire series or what-have-you. I just really have to get into it is all.
Anyhow, here are some books I really want to read:
- “My Name is Mary Sutter” by Robin Oliveira
- “The Illiad and The Odyssey” by Homer
- “Bumped” by Megan McCafferty
- “Roots” by Alex Haley
- “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville
- “Around the World in 80 Dates” by Jennifer Cox
- “Palimpsest” by Catherynne M. Valente
- “He’s Just Not in the Stars” by Jenni Kosarin
- “Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man” by Susan Faludi
- “The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night-time” by Mark Haddon
Some of these may seem familiar (I hope at least the classics), everything else I snagged of my Amazon.com wishlist. I may or may not read these books in this order. I haven’t decided yet. “Mary Sutter” will be first though. Can I count “The Illiad” and “The Odyssey” two different books? I imagine it’ll be a long and tough read… we’ll see how far I get.
