TBR Pile


All great writers read books. Alberto Manguel talked about reading: “Maybe this is why we read, and why in moments of darkness we return to books: to find words for what we already know.

I read too and I have quite a few books on my To Be Read (TBR) Pile, including:

  • Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert A. Heinlein
  • The Umbrella Man, Roald Dahl
  • Tomorrowland, Steven Kotler
  • Merle Haggard, The Running Kind, David Cantwell
  • The Mermaid’s Sister, Carrie Annie Noble
  • The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood
  • The Stars My Destination, Alfred Bester
  • Interviews with the Masters, Robert Greene
  • Slaughterhouse Five, Kurt Vonnegut
  • Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemmingway
  • The Black Echo, Michael Connelly
  • On Writing, Stephen King
  • The Dude Abides, The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers, Cathleen Falsani
  • The Land of Little Rain, Mary Austin
  • The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci Complete, Leonardo Da Vinci

All these books are in my Kindle with a 100 more waiting to be read. Some I have read before and others I just picked up because they looked interesting. This is the list I plan to tackle in the next few months.
