I love adding things to my Goodreads list, even when I know that, even now, I will probably never read everything on that list. I also love writing reviews of things I have read. I love reading, and I love talking about reading. (My husband calls me a book proselytizer.) So here’s what I’m adding today. Would love to hear from others on their recent adds.
1) Mia Couto.
Based at least partially on this quote:
The old man approached slowly as was his custom. He had shepherded his sadness before him ever since his youngest sons had left the road to no return.
2) The DFW book on rap
(if it’s not already on my list, along with everything else he wrote)
3) Ciarán Carson
after this Teju Cole Twitter question (I love hearing what other people are obsessed with)
4) Eduardo Galeano’s Children of the Days
5) Howard Norman’s I Hate To Leave This Beautiful Place
6) I wish I could add Daniel Schoonebeek
7) Joanna Hershon’s Dual Inheritance
