As you know, throughout the semester we were recommended books by our professor, and sometimes, fellow students. About mid-way through the semester, I started keeping track of our reading list. Eventually, it morphed into a list of songs, movies, and tv shows, too. The following is that list.

Gunter Grass, The Tin Drum, what it’s about here

The Wizard of Oz, what it’s about here

Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita, what it’s about here

Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, what it’s about here

Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn, what it’s about here

Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five, what it’s about here

    Thanks for this! I’ve been making a list for books to read this summer and I’ll definitely be reading some of these 🙂

  2. Thanks so much, Jenny. As you see, I’ve made some edits. (I’ll try to forgive you for not remembering that “Dance Music” is a song by the Mountain Goats.)

    I’m so glad to here it. That’s precisely why I’ve been saving up all these book titles this semester.

    I knew the Mountain Goats were in here somewhere but couldn’t figure out where (google wasn’t much help either). Thanks for the edits, it looks much more professional now.
