March 2018 books read

  • Station Eleven – Emily St. John Mandel, 2014
  • Running with the Mind of Mindfulness: Lessons for Training Body and MindSakyong Mipham, 2012
  • Candide – Voltaire, 1759 – Wow, I thought I had marked passages in this, since I read it for the Great Books group, but no record of a draft post or anything. I’ll come back if something turns up!
  • The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate; Discoveries from a Secret World – Peter Wohlleben, 2016.
  • Lost Boys – Orson Scott Card, 1989 – multiple re-read
  • Amphigorey (1972) and Amphigorey Too (1975) – Edward Gorey, re-reads because of the very interesting exhibit at the Wadsworth Atheneum. I was given the second when it came out (I would have been 11 or so) and pored over it many times, but didn’t get the first until later. I really want to visit the Gorey house on Cape Cod someday…
  • The “Odessey”: The Zombies in Words and Images – Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, Hugh Grundy, Chris White, with Scott B. Bomar and Cindy Da Silva, 2017
  • AnnihilationJeff VanderMeer, 2014 – I saw the movie first and actually prefer it quite a bit.
  • Cold Mountain – Han-shan, tr. Burton Watston, 1992
  • Why We Run: A Natural History – Bernd Heinrich, 2002
  • High Stakes – Dick Francis, 1975 – Comfort reading but I think I’m getting a little sick of DF, even the good stuff that was written by his wife. I can’t unread the hysterical take-down in Lord Gnome’s Literary Companion, a great book I have somewhere and want to re-read.
