Books of Interest For February 2013

I have started a campaign to catch up on some of those important books I should have read long ago so my personal reading lists are very eclectic and full of big fat books. That list is big and sad if you haven’t seen it. But these are the books that I suggested during the month of February. Some I have read, others I hope to read, and some are outside recommendations that I pass on to other readers but cannot personally vouch for. Here is the February list:

One thought on “Books of Interest For February 2013

  1. All I have read from that list is (should that be “is” or “are”? “Is”, I think, since it’s relating to “all” rather than the titles that follow; I always get this mixed up…) “The Trial”, “Joseph and his Brothers”, “Fathers and Sons” and some of Faulkner’s stories. I can certainly attest to the quality f all of these, although, when yo get to the Mann novel, do please read the translation by John E. Woods. Just about every sentence in I is a little prose poem.
