How’s this for a stupid idea: I’m going to run a poll among Palimpsesters to decide what to read next. I’ll give a shortlist of 5 books, and whichever garners the most votes I read after the Greene.
Which books am I going to choose for the shortlist? Don Quixote? Ulysees? Yeah, right. The exact right moment has to be struck to get those read – no leaving that to chance. How about:
- A Prayer for Owen Meany
- The Unfortunates
- Alma Cogan
- Status Anxiety
…and one other. Need to consult the cupboard before I finalise the list. Still, it should be interesting…
edit: The final book will be The Great Gatsby
