  1. 100 Years of Solitude has been on my must-read for a while. Considering I’m down to 2 half books (this is what I get for forgetting my current book while on a trip) before I need to go out and buy more, this may skip up to the top.

    Plus, Margaret Atwood. Pretty much anything. I’ve always enjoyed her.

  2. Whoa. I JUST got the Thirteenth Tale from the library YESTERDAY so that’s what I’m reading right now.

    The book I just finished is Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. I found it to be really engaging and interesting storytelling. And, it’s set in Ethiopia so that’s a little different which I enjoyed.

  3. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks (she also wrote “March”). It was really good, and it was one of those books that makes me want to hunt down everything by that author.

    1. I LOVED MARCH. I really did not think I would; I only read it because a colleague of my husband’s (who has a PhD in Amer. Lit.) gave it to him and raved about it. I was convinced it was glorified fan fiction – boy was I mistaken. Beautiful book. I need to read People of the Book.

  4. Who Will Run The Frog Hospital by Lorrie Moore will not disappoint. Great picks!

    I’m reading a sad but extremely well-written nonfiction book about soldiers’ experiences in Iraq, called Good Soldiers. It won the Pulitzer, and I can see why. To recover I will need something really light to read!

  5. You and I seem to have similar taste in books. Many of your suggestions, I’ve read, and I’m adding the ones I have not to my “list” based on so many similarities.

    On that note … have you read anything by Louise Erdich? I think you would love her.

  6. I love Their Eyes Were Watching God! wrote my senior thesis on that (well in HS) pretty sure ive read it about 4-5 times, and still like looking over my notes in it 🙂

  7. Reading is so not as fun when I’m in the throes of school, but thankfully I will be a free woman after tonight! I re-read Little Woman every December and I’ reading the Non-Runner’s Guide to running a marathon. HILARIOUS, Lauren, truly.
