summer reading

Here's a list of my summer reading. Some books were recommended to me, others have been sitting on my shelf for a while, and others were pseudo-random finds while browsing at libraries or bookstores, or online. I didn't differentiate between these groups, and I also haven't prioritized the books (though those listed first are marginally higher-priority than others, just because they came to mind first). If you have any comments on any of these or suggestions of others, I'd love to hear them!

Nonfiction:** need more design books

Fiction:
  • The Brothers Karamazov (my dad's favorite book)
  • Brave New World (again)
  • Catch-22
  • The Good Earth
  • House Made of Dawn
  • Angle of Repose
  • A Confederacy of Dunces
  • The Sound and the Fury (again)
  • Raven's Exile
  • Breaking Clean
  • Pilgrim at Tinker Creek (the rest) (actually nonfiction, but too entertaining for the list above :~))
  • some Thurber
  • Walden (again)
  • The Bell Jar (the rest)
