    Vacation time, meaning loads of reading!

    Just finished reading Steppenwolf and The Picture of Dorian Gray. Both excellent, Steppenwolf is a manifest for INXXs in a certain way.

    En cours:
    Walden (Thoreau) - must read! a IXXP manifesto.
    1984 - I eventually had to read it.

    I bought Dan Simmon's Hyperion for my trip back to France. Another classic. I am catching up on must-read gems and classics...

    Blue Highways

    A novel narrative. Or another way to put it; a novel non-novel, with pictures.

    ATM, I have _Jung's Typology in Perspective_ in front of me, along with my pencil and page flags. Good read. Then I will read what I said I'd be reading (which are all hard covers and annoying to carry).

    One of my all-time favorites. I like to read it when I'm stuck in a rut. It jump-starts me and gets me looking forward to a big change. It's also the main reason I got interested in ballroom dancing.

    A fantasy series entitled Water with three books (on the third). It's a story of the city of Atlantis with the main character being a female mermaid. It's enjoyable.

    I read The Shipping News and loved it. Has anyone here read Life of Pi?

Don recommended it to me.
    I have read almost every John Grisham novel. I have read all the Harry Potter books and cannot wait to read the 7th! My tastes vary widely.

    I just finished reading A Separate Peace by John Knowles, which I last read in high school.

    This may turn into the summer of re-reads, which I do at least every 5 years. Next up:

    The Magus by John Fowles
    The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
    Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer
    The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
    The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
    Jugurthine War Conspiracy of Catiline by Sallust

    I tend to have several home improvement, architecture, and landscaping/gardening books open at any one time, and I enjoy reading about true crime.

    I absolutely ADORED Life of Pi, indigo. One of my all-time favorites. It's exactly the kind of literature I like. I consider it emblematic of my MBTI ambiguities-- it's appealing to my N side and my S side. It's well-organized which appeals to my J side, but the themes are of openness and ambivalence by choice, which appeal to my P side.
