Summer reading should be engrossing and entertaining. Actually, all reading should be those things, in my opinion. I learn better through stories – the oral tradition clearly has its advantages.
That said, fall reading to me is also about introducing new ideas, and working a little harder for them. My fall list contains many engaging stories, but a few of them will also be “good for me.”
Here’s my current list of fall books, and I’m looking for more. What are you reading?
1. A Novel Bookstore, by Laurence Cosse (Author), Alison Anderson (Translator)
2. What Is the What, by Dave Eggers
3. The Red Pyramid, by Rick Riordan
4. Proust Was a Neuroscientist, by Jonah Lehrer
5. The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex, Edited by INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence
6. Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins
7. Smalltopia: A Practical Guide to Working for Yourself, by Tammy Strober
