I was enjoying some nighttime reading recently, and when I went to bed I must have been thinking about reading because I dreamed about all the books that are “must reads” to me but ones that I haven’t gotten to yet. We all have that list, right? I’ve been reading a lot of current fiction and it’s going really well for me but as the holidays approach, I may try to get a couple of those must reads in. Here are a few that pop into my head:
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Of Human Bondage by Somerset Maugham
Walden by Henry David Thoreau (every year I say I am going to read it)
Anyone have any of these on their list?
Coffee and a little weekend news and then I am off to see the high schoolers.
High school ministry is having their Halloween party this Wednesday. I need to work on my 80’s themed costume today which means a trip to the thrift store. It will be a lot of fun.
I also have Friday off since I had to use up more vacation days. No big plans but the used bookstore has a fiction sale on Fridays so I may hit that.
I finished The Stowaway and should have the review up tomorrow. Hopefully. What a book!
We have all these plans to watch stuff and then it doesn’t happen. Baseball has played a large role in that.
- While holed up on the couch with this knee, I have been mindlessly playing Mahjong on my phone. It’s a great way to spend an evening.
- It’s silly but I am so happy that salad bars are open again. I love a good salad and it’s just not the same when I make one at home.
That’s all I have. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and great week!
