Summer Reading Project

All year I’ve been planning to read a giant novel or two that I’ve missed. So far, top spots went to War and Peace and Infinite Jest. After an intense year and a thoroughly mushy brain, I’ve decided to dig through our library for novels that I haven’t read, but are the shortest. If we like them, we’ll keep them. If not, we won’t. I’ve never picked books based on length for personal reading, but I think this summer will be the perfect time to experiment and maybe free up some shelf space. Of course, I’ll be reading some other titles in other genres.

Right now the list is as follows:

Novel

Invisible Cities: Italo Calvino

Short Stories

Various H.P. Lovecraft collections

Essays/Nonfiction

What Great Teachers Do Differently: Todd Whitaker

Poetry

The Iliad

The Facts of a Doorframe: Adrienne Rich
