Highly Recommended Books I Am not Reading

telegraph-avenueThis will be right quick. I’m already 32minutes behind.[1] These are the books I am not reading in the order I’d like to:

  1. The House on Sugarbush Road – Méira Cook
  2. Telegraph Avenue – Michael Chabon
  3. Dear Life – Alice Munro
  4. Bring up the Bodies – Hilary Mantel

I’ve started all of them. There are others in the house, but these are the ones I move from one not reading spot to another. Then there are those on the list to buy, but there is so little point until I can read again as Flaubert advised a correspondent.: ”Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.”
