Books Read, January 2013

  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn —I don’t usually like reading “books of the moment,” but I’ll be damned if this book didn’t completely engross me. I haven’t love-hated a book like this in a long time.
  • Pavane by Keith Roberts — Perhaps the opposite of Gone Girl, this quiet and intense alternate history is remarkable and sometimes frustrating.
  • Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation by Sharon Salzberg —Reading this in preparation for undertaking the 28-day Meditation Challenge in February
  • The Hydrogen Sonata by Iain M. Banks —Banks’ newest Culture novel; I just started this a few nights ago.

It’s looking like February may be occupied with Infinite Jest
