What I’m Reading

interview-with-a-vampire.jpgWhat’s on my nightstand? I am still reading Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice. It’s been a slog for me, but I didn’t stop reading. It’s not my kind of book, but I am curious about vampire literature so I’m reading it, however long it takes.

What’s on my mp3 player? Nothing at the moment.

So what’s this post about?

I need to pack books to take out to Aialik. Here’s what I’ve pulled off my shelves. I’m hoping you can help me narrow it down. Can you recommend any of these books or authors in particular?

Mike and I will probably read one or all of these together:

An Introduction to Political Philosophy, by Jonathan Wolff
A Woman Tenderfoot, by Grace Gallatin Seton-Thompson
Minders of Make-Believe, by Leonard S. Marcus

My possible solo books (I really can’t take them all):

The Unnameables, by Ellen Booraem
The Possibilities of Sainthood, by Donna Freitas
Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time, by Lisa Yee
On Rough Seas, by Nancy L. Hull
Band Geek Love, by josie bloss
The Lab, by Jack Heath
Danger in the Desert, by Roger Cohen
The Smile, by Donna Jo Napoli
Two Girls of Gettysburg, by Lisa Klein
The Year We Disappeared, by Cylin Busby and John Busby
The Rule of Won, by Stefan Petrucha
The Diamond of Drury Lane, by Julia Golding

I know very little about most of these. If you don’t help me, I’ll just close my eyes and grab a few. So, even if you don’t have a recommendation based on experience, pick a title or author that sounds interesting to you.

  1. I’ve not heard of a single one of those books, which struck me as odd (not because I’m all-knowing, but because I have a bit of an appetite when it comes to reading).

    I felt pulled toward The Diamond of Drury Lane because the Muffin Man lives on Drury Lane (Do you know him?)

  2. I haven’t heard of any of them, either. I like the sound of The Diamond of Drury Lane, but Shelly already suggested that one. So my second choice is The Rule of Won, because I like puns. No other reason.

  3. I haven’t read any of them either, but I like the sound of _Band Geek Love_ and _On Rough Seas_. I always liked sea adventure stories when I was a kid (most notably, _Treasure Island_ and _20,000 Leagues under the Sea_. I always find picking books for a trip difficult. What if I finish the one I’m reading? How many should I pack? Good luck! I’m contemplating what to take to Nashville in three weeks.
