Books I Keep (Nov Blog 2/30)

2 Nov


I have joked that it’d be hard to move because I have too many books. This isn’t true, they’re not overflowing their shelves or a threat to my well-being should we get a random Central Texas earthquake (no heck please no), but I do have quite a few shelves full, many which have been with me for decades. I noticed none of my leftovers from my time as a history major at UNM made the list, which means maybe I could think about finally getting rid of some- no nevermind I need them.

Anyway, some highlights in case you’d like to check them out!

Bird By Bird – Anne Lamott: one of my favorite books on writing by one of my favorite writers

Writing Down the Bones – Natalie Goldberg: another brilliant book on writing, from a New Mexican

Jurassic Park – Michael Crichton: THIS IS A CLASSIC NO ONE WILL CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE. Iffy science bedamned. I read this once a year as a kid.

A Moveable Feast – Ernest Hemingway: Dan and I had a Hemingway book club for a minute (total members: 2) and this remains my favorite, though I loved them all.

Tools of Titans – Tim Ferriss: Smart words about just about everything in one giant volume that’s good for just flipping through and grabbing some inspiration.
