Diane McPhail (dianecmcphail) | 34 comments I think of myself as a voracious reader and keep up with NYT daily, but, not only have I not read, I have not even heard of most of these. I'm astounded.

Which ones and how come you put them down?

Man, I might not have heard of them but everybody else in my town has. They are all on hold for months.

I unsuccessfully attempted to read The Incarnations and The Merseault Investigation. I just couldn't get into them. I thought they would interest me, but they didn't.

Hm, The Incarnations looked interesting to me too. When I get, I'll let you know how I fare.

The Incarnations is also on my tbr list.

Also I recently picked up from my library The Meursault Investigation.

Hoo boy. Might have to read that The Mersault Investigation back to back with The Stranger. Just added that, too!

The only one that I've heard of was Toni Morrison's God Help the Child which I can't wait to read. Although I haven't been too excited about her later reads. Hopefully it's pretty good though.
