Reading Wednesday: Classic and Not-So-Classic (But Still Some of Them Excellent) Novels

This week’s reading included:

“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none.”

Deeply disturbing and far too accurate sentiment from Fahrenheit 451
  • Fahrenheit 451 (Bradbury)
  • Animal Farm (Orwell)
  • Out of Range (Box)
  • In Plain Sight (Box)
  • The Wind in the Willows (Grahame)
  • The Collapsing Empire (Scalzi)
  • The Consuming Fire (Scalzi)
  • The Last Emperox (Scalzi)

“As far as Kiva could tell, whenever selfish humans encountered a wrenching, life-altering crisis, they embarked on a journey of five distinct stages: Denial. Denial. Denial. Fucking Denial. Oh shit everything is terrible grab what you can and run.”

The Last Emperox

I have the next CJ Box book in the series on hold from the library but it’s unclear when that will come in. So next week is a little up in the air, reading-wise.

On the other hand I positively devoured this series from Scalzi – all 3 books in 1.5 days and he has several other series for me to seek out. How quickly I can get my hands on them will be a factor. Tons more classics are available of course.

I’ll be reading something. No worries there.
