AKA, books I covet. Books that will serve as motivation for me to do my own work — because I’ll put them on a high shelf and wire them up to an electrical circuit that will shock me if I touch them without first finishing my own writing for the day/week/month.
A Visit from the Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan
1Q84, Haruki Murakami
REAMDE, Neal Stephenson
Zone One, Colson Whitehead
11/22/63, Stephen King
How about you? Any books you’re itching to read? Anything you’re hoping to help you celebrate Christmas, Diwali, Purim, Eid, Tet, the Winter Solstice, the Rugby World Cup Final, Elvis’s birthday?
