New Reading For November

It’s cooling off down here in the south and I have been spending many pleasant afternoons on the lanai reading a few excellent novels on my iPad (despite the hot mess that is iBooks under Mavericks). For November I have shuffled a few titles that keep hanging on month after month and replaced them with new titles of books I definitely should have read already. Now is my chance.


So this is my list for November:

  1. Money — Martin Ames *
  2. The Year of the Flood — Margaret Atwood *

  8. Boswell: A Modern Comedy — Stanley Elkin
  9. Independence Day — Richard Ford *
  10. Neuromancer — William Gibson *
  11. The Ambassadors – Henry James
  12. Carmilla — J. Sheridan Le Fanu *
  13. Happyland — J. Robert Lennon *
  14. What I Know So Far — Gordon Lish
  15. While the Women Are Sleeping — Javier Marías *
  16. Akhenaten — Naguib Mahfouz *
  17. Crab Town — Carlton Mellick III *
  18. Gone With the Wind — Margaret Mitchell *
  19. The Helmet of Horror — Victor Pelevin
  20. Bleeding Edge — Thomas Pynchon
  21. The Flemish Shop — Georges Simenon * [FR]
  22. Momento Mori — Muriel Spark
  23. The Confessions of Nat Turner — William Styron
  24. The Ogre [The Eri-King] — Michel Tournier

See anything you’ve read? Have a comment or suggestion for me? Note that although I have real ink on paper copies of many of these books, I will still look for a digital version so that I can make the font big enough to read without struggling with my magnifying glass.
