Well, the application I use to keep my lists is still broken under the new operating system, but I did find a way to recover those lost titles from earlier in the month so I can present a complete list of suggested reading as was posted daily during October.
I’ve noticed that my suggested list tends to be filled out with fairly current titles, most of which I have not read as yet. I think I have to go back into my own reading history and recall some of the great novels (often classics) that I might have read long ago but that doesn’t mean that there are no new readers out there that might appreciate the suggestion.
This might be psychologically good for me too: instead of moaning about not having the time to read all the new books being published I can be proud of all the books I have already read. “I read that” feels much better than “I’ll never get to read that.”
