reading goals

Things I want to read more of:

  • David Foster Wallace1
  • Thomas Pynchon
  • William Vollmann
  • Dave Eggers2
  • Don DeLillo
  • Jonathan Franzen
  • William Gaddis
  • Jon Barth
  • Seth Fried3

So, basically, I feel I really, really need to catch up on contemporary American literature.

And now: Things I want to read less of:

  • Status updates
  • Twitter feeds
  • Blatantly biased and mean journalism
  • Celebrity gossip
  • Charlie Sheen quotes
  • LOLCats

  1. His new – unfinished – novel, The Pale King, comes out on April 15th.
  2. I loved A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius but haven’t read anything of his since.
  3. Went to college with Seth and his collection of short stories comes out in about a month.
