Currently Reading 12/14


[To the tune of the fifth day down of "On the First Day of Christmas"]

By the last week of winter break I will plan to read
The Undercommons
Do-o-o-o-on Quixote
Barf Diaries
Coyote Blue
 and The Average American Male.

-The Undercommons by Stefano Harney and Fred Moten - because of Lisa.
-Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes - because I read it first in Spanish which isn't my first language, so I totally missed some of the nuances.
-Barf Diaries by Dodie Bellamy - because Ramsey Scott.
-Coyote Blue by Christopher Moore - because he's fun and Vonnegut-esque and meta and funny and I love this writer
-The Average American Male by Chad Kultgen - because Chante.
