Michael Chabon

Michael Chabon goes up to the counter and orders an iced coffee. It makes sense to him. It’s cold outside and his drink should be, too. A shiver passes through him. He stares at his palm, where he’s incoherently diagrammed a series of complex chess moves. A bell tower in the distance strikes three times. His short, hairy companion lopes out into the street. The seventh-inning stretch is about to end.

goddesssincarnate  asked:

hi rhiannon, Im 16 and trying to immerse myself into literature and science at the moment. would you be so kind as to recommend your favorite books? Maybe some scientific/ poetic/ enlightening/ philosophical ones ? Which ever ones, really. Thank ya! -abigail

this is great because i was just admonishing an engineering major for not reading more! this is what i said:

the AMAZING ADVENTURES of kavalier and clay by michael chabon (and all of his books tbh), a tree grows in brooklyn by betty smith, octavia butler and james tiptree for scifi, zora neale hurston just like off the top of my head but i also make book review videos and read a bunch of sciencey stuff

I’d been meaning to make a rec list for a while, but now I’m finally getting around to it! I’ve read or started to read most of the books on this list, and I own 95% of them. If I haven’t read it, but someone has recommended it to me, I’ve included it. I know that there are books I’ve read or have been meaning to read that aren’t on here because my memory is shit and I never write anything down. Titles link to Goodreads.

An asterisk (*) indicates a book I haven’t read yet. A pound sign (#) indicates a book I haven’t read yet, but which others have recommended. A tilde (~) indicates a book I’m in the process of reading and would recommend up to the current point (aka “I don’t know if this book has a terrible second half, but so far it’s good”). Italics indicate a personal favorite.
