You asked for it......

I really can't figure out how to post this.... so here it is... rough-style.

By no means have I READ all of these books.... I just write down titles as I see them or hear of them and hope, hope, hope to read them someday. The list is handy when I go to the library and need inspiration. (Note: Yes, there is a little "trash" among the "treasures." No snobbery allowed here at the Homestead.)

M&Co. said...

WOW! That's quite a list. I've read quite a few of them. O.K. the new one out that I want to read is Why Beulah Shot her Pistol Inside the Baptist Church. It's by Clayton Sullivan who also wrote a lovely Fable, Jesus & the Sweet Pilgrim Baptist Church: A Fable. Add them both to your list!

mrtl said...

You have got to be kidding! I mean, it's a long list to begin with, but then you put the OED in there?? Dios mio!

McSwain said...

Holy Smoke.

Homestead said...

m&co.- Added.

mrtl- The OED is bedtime reading compared to some of the scientific texts on this list. A few of the books on this list I've picked up, poked at, and given up.... but I like to keep them on the list in case I feel inspired one day at the library.... like Antoine St. Exupery (sp?). I TRIED to read it about a 1000 times because Jimmy Buffett quotes him.... FINALLY, on our trip to Cannon Beach I "got" it and it wasn't such a struggle. There are also a bunch of Montana history books I want to read and some "must read" people that aren't on here because I KNOW I love them.... Douglas Adams, Harlan Elison, Deborah Magpie Earling, Pete Fromm, Judy Blunt, Ivan Doig.

cheryl- I know. Dream big, right?

Susan said...

We used to own a copy of the OED, way back when. I have no idea where it went.

Think about Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace--love love love it.
