Books on My Coffee Table Right Now
- •Laurence Sterne, The Life and Opinions of Tristram ShandyTeaching this favorite for the next couple of weeks.
- •Oxford History of the Novel, vol 2: English and British Fiction 1750-1820Reviewing this one. So far so good!
- •Phillip K. Dick, The Penultimate TruthMy current fun read, and another one that came from Paperback Swap. I haven't read much of his fiction, but this is an interesting dystopia so far. The premise is that plutocrats have managed to keep the earth's population underground, while they own the surface, by means of an elaborate fiction. All about the Big Lie.
- •A History of Arctic ExplorationBF's book. Looks fascinating. Also it's an actual coffee-table book.
- •Global BirdingI got this one for the BF. He's a devoted birder.
- •SailingBF's. He is clearly much fancier than I am.
- •Below the Convergence: Voyages toward Antarctica 1699-1839I got this from Paperback Swap for both of us -- looks interesting.
