Readings...

Currently Reading:
Housekeeping (Marilynn Robinson)
The Informant (Kurt Eichenwald)

[both are engrossing and hard to put down so you can imagine I'm not getting much done...]

Read Recently:
Black Boy (Richard Wright)
Wise Blood (Flannery O'Connor)
Franny and Zooey (J.D. Salinger)
The Sparrow (Mary Doria Russell)

[Housekeeping and the Wright, Salinger and Flannery O'Connor are on the reading list for a Open Yale course which is FREE online...I am making my way through the sessions slowly but surely]

Wow! Thanks for that awesome link to OYC! I vaguely remember reading that some schools were providing courses online -- what a fun idea to follow along. I'd love to see them offer some earlier lit courses too.

Did you like Housekeeping? I read it several years ago and I thought it was a powerful read.
