I have been lax in reporting on my reading of late — most notable omissions = The God Delusion and Persepolis. Both of which come with the Calhoun Stamp of Approval. Getting almost all of my books from the Toronto Public Library can be both a blessing and a curse for at the moment I have nothing to read (that isn’t already on my shelf languishing) and I just know that there will be an unreadable amount of books ready for me all at once. That’s when I find out which ones I really want to read (Click) and which ones I think I should read (The Shock Doctrine).
100 Notable Books of the Year, according to the New York Times
And of those 100, I have read just one (erm, Harry Potter) and have one on my shelf unread (Leonard Woolf: A Biography). There are several on the list I’d like to read (After Dark, The View from Castle Rock, Yiddish Policemen’s Union) and others I would never (The Diana Chronicles). And you?
