A stack of books I have read in the past couple of months. Some were good, some just OK, and some were VERY good.
My favorites were:
Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy.
East of Eden by John Steinbeck ( a re-read)
Walden by Henry David Thoreau (I finally got around to reading it, and I'm glad I did!)
I know... not your typical Summer Reading List, but I have several piles of unread books, and these were the ones who called out the loudest to me. ;-)
I'm currently reading a memoir called Crow in the House, Wolf at the Door, by a Texas author, Frances Nail. It's a collection of essays about her childhood, growing up in Texas during the Depression, and about her life since then.
My mother was born in Texas about the same time, which is one reason I'm finding this book so interesting.
