Slice of Life 21:
Straight forward -> No nonsense today.
Books that made me laugh and mourn and fear and pity and sympathize and empathize and cheer and sigh.
Books that just killed me.
Books that hit home struck a chord sparked a flame ignited a passion
Books that I love, think everyone should love, think everyone should read, must read, before they die.
Off the top of my head- the first ten…
in 5 minutes or less…
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou
Cat’s Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut
Slapstick, Kurt Vonnegut
Women, Charles Bukowski
Circle of Friends, Maeve Binchy
Lolita, Vladimir Nobokov
Glass Castle, Jeanette Walls
The Things They Carried, Tim O’ Brien
The Paris Wife, Paula McClain
On the Road, Jack Kerouac
Electric Kool Aid Acid Test, Tom Wolfe
Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe
The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
Ok. So that’s 12, but it’s the first 12 that popped into my head. I hate writing this list because I know there are dozens more and I feel like I am betraying and two-timing them. But in all honesty, it’s got to say something that these are the first that came to mind.
What are the first couple books that pop into your head?
If you had one minute to write down the names of 3 books that, in your opinion, everyone on the planet should read,
before they die.
