Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. tolstoy is a genius when it comes to writing. so much of his book flew right past me because my understanding was so limited. i wish so much i'd taken a russian literature course in college. but i'd listened to stereotype and thought russian literature was boring and long. i'd love to listen to intelligent people discuss this book.
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. i am fascinated by the middle east and this was such a unique and peaceful perspective. i really appreciated it.
The Serpent and the Rainbow; a Harvard Scientist’s Astonishing Journey into the Secret Societies of Haitian Voodoo, Zombies and Magic. So Interesting (with a capital I).
Love Poems to God by Rainer Maria Rilke. his words make me fall in love.
Best Read-It-Quick Pick:
Bel Canto by Anne Patchett. read it in a day. loved every bit of it. was sad when it was over.
East of Eden by John Steinbeck. not my favorite, but well written.
a poem by a guy named john peter cabaniss from my review days (spring semester). three lines and he made me want to cry. genius.
"what have you done with my people?"
"what have we done with ourselves?"
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This time around, that book was funnier than I remembered it being.
