Remember To Check These Out

New book titles flow into my computer from online services, bookstores, other readers, travels to my bookcase, and sometimes even my friends, personal or academic. Although it often seems like I am grasping for books to recommend, the reality is probably that I could toss out a dozen suggestions every day and not come close to covering all the good reading out there, whether it’s newly published books or old classics that may have been around for umpteen years and even taught in schools.

Did you know that Joyce’s Ulysses was first published in 1922? That’s old: the centennial is coming up before you know it. And let’s not forget Homer’s epic on a similar topic. Surely you’ve read Ulysses and The Odyssey. If not, consider the two works excellent foundations for an understanding of literature .. and life.
