The 2018 Reading List

Guess who’s not dead. It’s me!

Amongst the annual nebulous thoughts on what my new year’s resolutions should be is the idea (prompted by Blu… hi Blu!) of starting the year off with a book number goal comprised of a list of to-read books plus open slots to fill with spur-of-the-moment decisions. My reading in 2017 was dreadful, and it almost seems like my thoughts have become fat and lazy because of it. Time to establish a rhythm again. My number goal is 30: 10 fiction, 10 non-fiction, 10 open slots. Let’s go.

Moby-Dick – Herman Melville
The Death of Virgil – Hermann Broch

The Adventures of Augie March – Saul Bellow
Absalom, Absalom! – William Faulkner
The Satanic Verses – Salman Rushdie
Norwegian Wood – Haruki Murakami
John Dies at the End – David Wong
Tenth of December – George Saunders

The Endurance Diet – Matt Fitzgerald
