52 books in (15 shy of) 52 weeks

7. Blue Angel by Francine Prose

Prose doesn't shy away from capturing the intricacies of campus political correctness.

8. Black Swan Green by David Mitchell

'Nuff said. (Although you can hear from others and Mitchell himself here, here, and here.)

9. The Diviners by Rick Moody

I bet if Rick Moody hadn't written this book, it would have gotten better reviews.

10. Making a Literary Life by Carolyn See

Even though this guide was written for outsider literary wannabes, I can't imagine it wouldn't be inspirational to anyone.

11. Willful Creatures by Aimee Bender

I thought my appreciation of Kelly Link was a fluke, but apparently, I really like this genre of surrealist imaginings.

11 down, 41 to go.
