Just finished up rereading "Sourcery" by Terry Pratchett. Pratchett's not just an excellent fantasy writer; he's an excellent writer, period.
Starting on a Flannery O'Connor short story collection. I read a few of her pieces in college, but haven't since then. So I'm getting to it now, and maybe after that, I'll get to "Love Among the Ruins" by Walker Percy.
Good thing I'm near a well-stocked used bookstore........
I was an English major in college, but I don't consider myself well-read. Aside from a few favorite authors (Pratchett, C.S. Lewis, Chesterton, and a few fantasy writers), I haven't read much fiction & literature in the last 8-10 years -- it's been mostly philosophy and theology. But I feel....incomplete. Not well-rounded. Ignorant. So now I'm trying to remedy that.
Here are some of the authors on my Future Projects list:
Walker Percy -- all major works,
Samuel Johnson & James Boswell,
Fyodor Dostoevsky (got halfway thru "Brothers Karamazov" before I laid it down and didn't pick it up again),
Dumas pere and fils,
Got any more recommendations (either authors or works)? Please email me. I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions.
