The Five Books I'm Reading, January Edition (Plus One)

Yes. I read multiple books simultaneously. So?

There is a Top Six now, which aberration from the norm I intend to make a New Year's tradition. All the links connect to Goodreads. Connect with me there!

THE HOLY QURAN (two translations, Irving and Yusuf Ali -- I move back and forth)

CONTEMPORARY FICTION (amazing collection of short stories from 1970 forward)

THE STAND (vast, enthralling Stephen King masterpiece)

TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES (scathing, exquisitely written Thomas Hardy indictment of social hypocrisy)

ANNA KARENINA (on audiobook -- I listen to this Tolstoy during walks)

THE SILENT ROOM (Mari Hannah's cool, gripping thriller -- loving it so far)
