GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END 

06/18-19/2011

If you follow this blog, you just run into lots of new and great books. The fiction book I’m reading right now, State of Wonder (if you click on it in the left menu you will access its synopsis on Goodreads] has also just been published.

But if it’s not to your taste, here are some more possibilities:

FICTION:

Paris To The Moon, by Adam Gopnik
another great book on Paris it seems!

Dubliners, by James Joyce
we just celebrated James Joyce day yesterday, so that could be an appropriate read for this week-end

Embassytown, by China Mieville
there’s something that tells me I should be able to enjoy this author, but so far I had to give up on all his books. I want to give a try at this one though. What about you?

Ordinary Thunderstorms, by William Boyd

Between Two Ends, by David Ward

Leaving Van Gogh, by Carol Wallace
novel focused on the great painter

Sister, by Rosamund Lupton

NON-FICTION:

Confessions of a Young Novelist, by Umberto Eco
I had never heard of that one before.

The Social Life of Coffee: The Emergence of the British Coffeehouse, by Brian Cowan
for you if you want to drink smart!

The Filter Bubble: What the Internet is Hiding from You, by Eli Pariser

ANYTHING TO YOUR FANCY IN HERE?

  1. This is a great list of books! I love The Dubliners! I read Ordinary Thunderstorms and thought it was pretty good but I’ve read that Boyd’s written better books. I haven’t read anything by China Melville yet, but I ant to…I think! And Leaving Van Gogh sounds great!

    I included two new books on my Friday Finds…next week I will try to think a little more about good books to read!
