This page contains links to things I am reading or have read, both books and articles.
I want to share articles I have read and particularly liked. Though the content is important, I’m really going to focus on items I thought were particularly well-written. Not that everything you read has to be some perfect literary creation. But it’s good to read at least some things that are wonderfully, artfully imagined and constructed.
I regret not keeping a list of all the books I’ve ever read. I would have started it in 1965 when I was in first grade and had just learned to read. I’ll never forget the cover of that first book. It had a picture of two boys in a rowboat. The book, checked out from the library, felt wonderfully heavy and thick; I felt so mature, so accomplished! If I had kept that kind of list it would be a tome by now, a precious treasure and invaluable window into some of my early and ongoing literary influences.
