My Reading List For The Time Being

I always have a stack of books on my nightstand. I would welcome any comments on the following, which are ones I’ll be reading in the next few months:

Crossed Over by Beverly Lowery (I’m writing a paper on Lowery and need to see if this book should be included in the paper, so I’m reading it now.)

The Awakening and Selected Short Stories by Kate Chopin (Read many times, but still think these are some of the best short stories ever written.)

Gothic Tales by Elizabeth Gaskell

The Stories of Elizabeth Spencer

The Sound and the Fury by Faulkner (Feel a little guilty that I haven’t taken the time to read this one yet.)

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Billy Ray’s Farm by Larry Brown (I love Larry Brown. LOVE him.)

The Signet Classic Book of Southern Short Stories

Madame Bovary by Flaubert

The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje (Seen the movie about forty times. Sexiest movie ever.)

Madame Bovary is great!

Madame Bovary is one of my top three favorite books.

The English Patient also is great- and the movie is divine. It fueled a longstanding crush on Ralph Fiennes for me.

And I think Kate Chopin is wonderful.

I'll have to check out the others.

It's got to have something to do with Madame Bovary. Type her name and watch your comment double or triple! Let's see if it happens with this one.
