In October I'll be reading Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
I'll also be reading John Updike's classic: Rabbit, Run. Updike also won the Pulitzer in both 1982 and 1991.
If this sort of novel doesn't blow your hair back you might try Jon Krakauer's non-fiction work, Into the Wild (see the Review section in the sidebar). But do feel free to join me in reading something.
I've decided to go ahead and take this blog completely toward politics/economy. It's all I talk about anyway. Remember, you can email me at randy [at] circularlife [dot] com or use the chat box in the lower right.
