Pressed In a Book

Reading is awesome. However, I’m not going to preach at you and say ‘close that laptop and open a book, blah blah blah…’
I mean, I’m blogging about reading… who am I to talk.
I do love reading a great book and I thought, maybe there are others out there that could use a little novel nudge:


















1. Townie by Andre Dubus III (A memoir on his life as a child, and his father Andre Dubus)
2. House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III (A dark novel about the yearning for a home)
3. The Wettest County in the World by Matt Bondurant (A true story about the Bondurant Brothers on which the movie “Lawless” is based)
4. Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts (A book influenced by real events about a man who escaped from prison and runs to India)
5. In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson (A historical novel about the American Ambassador, and his family, in Berlin during Hitler’s reign)
6. Buyology by Martin Lindstrom (A non-fiction book on why we buy)
7. Selected Stories by Andre Dubus (A collection of short stories by the father of Andre Dubus III)
8. On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan (A broken down love story by the author of Atonement)
9. Coronado by Dennis Lehane (Short stories by the author of Shutter Island)
