It’s mostly to develop vocabulary and story development for my daughters & myself.
Would…anyone else care to join or donate a book recommendation?
Dictionary of the Khazars was a fun one. I read the Female Edition, if memory serves.
Ender’s Game, always a winner
Lois McMaster Bujold, her books about Miles Vorkosigan, really extraordinary.
100 Years of Solitude. Cheaper than drugs and longer-lasting, too.
The Wild Boys, or Naked Lunch, by Burroughs. Speaking of books that are exactly like drugs.
A Void, by George Perec. As I recall, this book was written entirely without using one particular letter of the alphabet. So very odd.
Spoon River Anthology. Extraordinary, simple poetry that will kick you in the feels on every single page
Any book by Sharon Olds. See above re: kick you in the feels. See if you can find the volume with the poem about the Pope’s penis.
Swimming To Antarctica. Show your girl how to dream big and crazy.
One Hundred Names for Love. Vocab city.
Anything by Jen Lancaster, but especially Bitter Is the New Black.
That ought to keep y’all busy a couple days.
