I’ve managed to whittle down my next cover-to-cover read to four titles.
Short List of Books I Might Read Next
- Letters to Camondo
- Vernon Subutex 3
- Secondhand Time: The Last of the SovietsAll We Know: Three Lives
I already have copies of Vernon Subutext 3 and Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets. The two books couldn’t be more different—one being the third novel in a popular trilogy by a “bad girl” of French publishing and the other being an oral history compiled by a Nobel laureate and activist.
Then again, I am half in love with two of the authors—not the two you might think I’d be in love with, though.
None of them has a good cover (see below), which is fine because I would never use such a thing to judge a book (based on universal advice).
I know three of the four shortlisted titles will make me cry. I know I won’t regret reading any one of them.
I’ll make my decision and announce it soon to nobody (i,e., all the people who read my blog).
