More Good Books

In an earlier post I mentioned that putting my books on GoodReads has reminded me of a lot of outstanding books that I’ve read in recent years but did not have time to review on Notes in the Margin. I was sure I’d remember a few more and, of course, I did.

So here’s another list. As before, there is no special meaning to the order in which books are listed, and all of these are books that I would rate either 4 or 5.

  • Plainsong, Kent Haruf
  • Empire Falls, Richard Russo
  • I Know This Much Is True, Wally Lamb
  • The Center Cannot Hold: My Journey through Madness, Elyn Saks
  • The Drowning People, Richard Mason
  • Still Alice, Lisa Genova
  • Lucky: A Memoir, Alice Sebold
