Title: Learn me to read!
Post by: mustang6172 on 29 Apr 2016, 18:27
I've got a backlog of ebooks already downloaded.  Instead of picking one at random, I decided to crowd source.  You may select up to 2.

Just two?  I've narrowed it down to Melville, London, and Murasaki, and I can't decide which one to drop.  I tried 'Confidence Man' a few years ago and had to set it aside because it was very strange and I couldn't focus at the time (it's more demanding than Moby-Dick, I'll say that much), but I still intend to get back to it someday.  I'm planning on giving 'Genji' a second try sometime in the next month or so--tried reading it during a camping trip two years ago and gave up, but this time I decided to prepare by reading several ladies' court diaries of the period along with The World of the Shining Prince (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/73389.The_World_of_the_Shining_Prince?from_new_nav=true&ac=1&from_search=true).  And I haven't tried London yet, but 'Iron Heel' has been on my must-read list for years, simply because it's a lesser-known dystopian novel by Jack London.

So yeah, read those three.

I was originally planning on just one vote per user, but two votes seemed more practical since I wasn't expecting a lot of responses.

I was not prepared for this to end in a tie.  A complex tiebreak system has been prepared for such an event.

Eeny, meeny, miny... Dickinson
