Re-Reading in 2014

While Re-Reading in 2013 was a complete failure, I feel better about 2014. Just change one little number and BOOM: self-made challenge, ready to go. So once again, feel free to join me in re-reading books you’ve always meant to pick up again but just haven’t–until now.

Here’s my current list of books, some or all of which I would like to re-read in 2014:

All My Friends Are Going to Be Strangers, Larry McMurtry
Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry
In the Lake of the Woods, Tim O’Brien
Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson
You Remind Me of Me, Dan Chaon
True Grit, Charles Portis
Diary of a Mad Housewife, Sue Kaufman
Straight Man, Richard Russo
Genius, Patrick Dennis
I Capture the Castle, Dodie Smith
Motherless Brooklyn, Jonathan Lethem
Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Marisha Pessl
Plainsong, Kent Haruf
Eventide, Kent Haruf

*Links are unaffliated. I receive no compensation for the purchase of any of these books.


  1. Well, let’s see….here’s what I will re-read:

    The Golden Bowl, Henry James….haven’t read this since forever and it has been calling to me.

    Persuasion, Jane Austen…my favorite Austen and a yearly read.

    The Age of Innocence or The Buccaneers…ready for some Wharton.

    George Washington, William Sterns Randall…one of the best bios I have ever read. And then maybe George Washington by Ron Chernow, for perspective. It would be fun to compare and contrast the two very well received books.

    Maybe I will jump on the McMurtry ride with you. It’s about time for another trip to Texasville!

    This is about all I better committ to since I haven’t been able to read even one book for months.

    Happy re-reading. This should be some familiar fun!
