  1. if you are going to do Steinbeck then Grapes of Wrath is a must as are any of the 'lighter' Cannery Row novels (Tortilla Flat, Cannery Row etc) also Travels with Charley is fabulous. Farenheit 451, Dune. Anything by Marquez, ditto Isabel Allende. Nothing wrong with Anne Rice if you're into the whole vampire/supernatural thing. Memnoch the Devil is as good a meditation on what it is to be human as anything I've come across. Bill Bryson's travel writing for humor and broad-brush national critiques. Laurie Lee is good. Realize this is filtered thru' my Anglo-centric lens and (almost) 60 years. If vyou want History then that's a whole other page!!

    1. I have this weird feeling that Grapes of Wrath will totally depress me. I'm trying not to read a bunch of stuff that'll depress me and bore me...I'll have to add some Anne Rice, I think I'd like her. I'm looking for mostly a good variety of books, from fantasy ficiton to history to books I missed out on in school.

  2. Lots of good ones on here! I can't believe you've never read Perks! If youre looking for fantasy I would definitely recommend the Song of Ice and Fire series(Game of Thrones, I was skeptical at first but soon addicted. Looking for a new series myself, any suggestions? I loved your last post! Miss you, and I hope we get to meet up again, shoot girl it's been ages!
