I hope you like Blindness. I see you have a Lablit book on the list. I recently tried to find a couple of books mentioned on the site but struck out. Have you read David Lodge before? I haven't but was looking at the used bookstore for his Consciousness and the Novel which came recommended from somewhere that I can't now remember.

I read Trading Places last year when I was in DC at a conference. It was a hilarious academic comedy, and far more interesting than the conference. :)

Lablit-wise, I highly recommend Allegra Goodman's Intuition, which is just recently out. Susan read it not long ago.

A very interesting list. I look forward to reading some of your thoughts on the books as you work your way through it. I've just begun reading David Lodge's The Practice of Writing which is mostly essays about novels and novel writing. I expect I'll post some excerpts and some Lodge-inspired thoughts on my blog soon.

Thanks for the Goodman recommendation. I remember both you and Susan posting about it. I'll have to get my hands on a copy.
