Thanks very much to everyone who suggested books to add to my reading list. Pretty much every recommendation you gave me has gone on the list; how soon I get to start working through those books, I don’t know. Probably depends on when I can get to the library.
In the meantime, I’ve started (for the third time) a book I’ve been meaning to read forever-and-a-half: Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I keep starting it and losing the thread of it–not out of lack of interest, but just because my ADD self hasn’t quite been able to keep my head in the book. But I’m hoping this time to stay with it and finish it. Maybe telling all of you that I’m reading it will help keep my head in it.
Also added to the list was the book Terry got me for Christmas: The Kite Runner by Khalid Hosseini, which I hadn’t even heard of but sounds fascinating. I’m not completely sure what it’s about just yet, though I know it deals a lot with the situation in contemporary Afghanistan. Tell you what: I’ll give you guys a full book report when I’m done.
