Looks Like Some Good Reading

City LightsInstead of winding things down, reading-wise, I seem to be finding more and more titles that intrigue me. I’m sort of in a quandary: should I concentrate on the classical novels that I still have not read (all those Penguin Classics on the shelves in the bedroom), or should I give in and realize that I can easily fill up my time with some fascinating contemporary fiction; then again, I could just concentrate on the transgressive fiction I love to read; what about all those journals with all those erudite articles and experimental short fiction? What should I do?

Well, this last month I have uncovered many newer titles that caught my fancy or new books by known authors that I just might want to read. I’ve added a few of these to my upcoming reading pool but there are so many. What about your reading list?
