Meaningful Monday…Books

Books… speak to us thoughtfully, one at a time. They demand our attention. And they demand that we briefly put aside our own beliefs and prejudices and listen to someone else’s. There’s one question I think we should ask one another a lot more often, and that’s “What  are you reading?” Will Schwalbe’s Books for Living

So..what are you reading? I’d really love to add more to my list of “must-reads!”

You cannot direct the wind, but you can adjust the sails!

  1. Jeanine, I’m currently reading ‘LaRose’ by Louise Erdrich, and am loving it, although very tragic start.
    Previous to this I read The Sellout by Paul Beatty – didn’t like it at all. (It’s a satire on modern black Americans and maybe because I’m not American, most of it was lost on me – and my book club…!)

    Next read that I’m looking forward to:
    Days Without End, by Sebastian Barry

    Books I’ve loved in the last few months:
    Preparation for the Next Life – Atticus Lish
    A Place Called Winter – Patrick Gale (10/10 from me)
    All the Light We Cannot See – Anthony Doerr

    Book of the Decade, unless something incredibly incredible comes along!
    A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara

    Book of the previous decade –
    Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel
