2011 Reading List (So Far)

I'm on a Fiction Spree. It's like 2011 is The Year of the Novel for me or something. I started caring about critics again and reading the New York Times book review section and the Amazon "Best Of" section. Here's what I've been reading...

  22. Shteyngart, Gary - Super Sad True Love Story
  23. Udall, Brady - The Lonely Polygamist
  24. Watson, S.J. - Before I Go To Sleep
Non-fiction that reads like a novel:


Right now I'm reading Jennifer Egan's The Keep. It was a slow start, but I'm completely hooked at this point.

And of course this does not count the books I have had to read for seminary. Right now I'm reading two fascinating books for Church History. They feel more like books I want to read than books I have to read: Justo Gonzalez's The Story of Christianity, Volume 1 & Volume 2.

How 'bout you? What have you read lately? What do you recommend?
