Today’s List

Life is so short that you only have a finite amount of time to read. The question is then do you occupy your remaining hours on earth reading new books that could be crap or do you re- read books that you know to be enjoyable, brilliant, challenging, memorable. If I was told today that the world was ending, books I would read again, not in any particular order:

The Life of Pi

The Crossing


Catch 22

At Swim-Two-Birds

The Road

The Sportswriter/Independence Day/Lay of the Land

Moby Dick

One Hundred Years of Solitude

The Táin translated by Kinsella

Sweeney Astray

Sin É! Hopefully it won’t come to that.
