It's already mid-July and I've barely started. If I write it down and put my reading list out into the world, that means I'll have to get through it all, right? Here are some key titles:
Subtly Worded by Nadezhda Teffi
After Me Comes The Flood by Sarah Perry
A Greedy Man in a Hungry World by Jay Rayner
A God in Every Stone by Kamila Shamsie
A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing by Elmear McBride
I also want to read Nicholson Baker's The Anthologist and Traveling Sprinkler.
Tangential: It sort of infuriates me that Kindle books are only a dollar or two cheaper than discounted paperback or hardcover editions. I love book-books and feel very little incentive to conserve paper or use my Kindle (even though I'm pretty sure I own every Kindle ever made) because I feel like I'm being ripped off by publishers charging me almost the same amount for something that required no printing or raw material overhead whatsoever. Also, I'd rather have the physical paper books anyway. So.
