Books I've Been Reading for a Very, Very Long Time But Have Not Yet Finished

  • The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
  • The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
  • The Mercy Papers by Robin Romm
  • The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti
  • The Road by Cormac McCarthy
  • Big World by Mary Miller

  • Pank #4
  • Slice Magazine #4
  • The Writer's Notebook: Craft Essays from Tin House
  • Citizens Welles by Frank Brady

It's not that I'm not enjoying these books and journals. I am. Immensely. I want to finish each of them. But somehow… I start one. I stop. I start another. I stop. It’s bad. It’s not good.

This is me admitting there's a problem. The first step.

(Although somewhere in there, at some point, I did manage to start and finish Kevin Wilson's Tunneling to the Center of the Earth. So there's hope.)

Great books to read. _The Road_ blew me away.
