Catfish are Jumpin'

Within a couple hours, I'll be at Alta Mons mostly for the duration. This event marks my first day of summer so I thought I would share my summer reading list. Feel free to suggest books to add (or remove) although I fear I will be reading from this list until Christmastime. 

The Penelopiad - Margaret Atwood
The Last of the Mohicans - James Fenimore Cooper
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek - Annie Dillard
The Life You Save May Be Your Own - Paul Elie
Cold Mountain - Charles Frazier *
Thirteen Moons - Charles Frazier
A Blue Moon in Poorwater - Cathryn Hankla
Jude the Obscure - Thomas Hardy
Ulysses - James Joyce
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - Barbara Kingsolver
Angels in America - Tony Kushner
The Problem of Pain - C.S. Lewis
A River Runs Through It - Norman MacLean *
Teacher Man - Frank McCourt *
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court - Mark Twain
A Time to FIGHT - James Webb

An asterisk denotes a re-read. I've already finished Angels in America (the first part was assigned for class) and I'm two-thirds of the way through my perennial summer opener Cold Mountain. I will probably start Ulysses next as I received it for my 21st birthday in December. This is the summer of epic.

The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert, Blindness by José Saramago, and may I recommend For the Time Being by Annie Dillard in addition or instead of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek? Much love, Emily
