The books currently rotating in and out of bed with me.
The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. Given to me as a birthday gift by my friend Alex, with the story of how he bought his copy of it off the black market while growing up under Soviet rule.
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. A book that resonated with me more than most I’ve ever read, it rarely leaves my side.
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Also given to me by Alex, I was overdue to read it anyway.
Out of My Life and Thought by Albert Schweitzer. Like, oh you know, EVERYONE, I find him so inspiring.
Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin A. Abbott. Send to me by the legendary Jonny Opinion, it’s a “a stirring adventure in pure mathematics.”
The Best Poems of the English Language. I’m a girl. I read poetry.
A Little Anthropology by Dennison Nash. Found it in the breakroom at work, enjoying the overview of one of my favorite subjects.
Malinche by Laura Esquivel. So far it’s decent, but my favorite thing is that the book jacket unfolds as a poster of Mayan art.
