Home, Marilynne Robinson: I enjoyed Gilead, so I figured this one was worth a shot, too.
The Pre-Occupation of Postcolonial Studies, edited by Fawzia Afzal-Khan and Kalpana Rahita Seshadri: No, I'm not in grad school anymore; yes, I'm still a nerd.
Perdido Street Station, China Mieville: recommended by a friend whose literary judgment I trust.
For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide...., Ntozake Shange: have been meaning to get to this one for a while and haven't.
Conversations with Isaiah Berlin, Ramin Jahanbegloo: uh. Looked interesting. And I haven't read Berlin since freshman year of college.
Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Marisha Pessl: Also looked interesting, in a completely different way from Conversations.
Parable of The Sower, Octavia Butler: If it's half as good as Kindred, it'll be plenty good.
And...stuff I've read recently:
Sister Outsider, Audre Lorde
Losing Battles, Eudora Welty
Good Omens, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
Haroun and the Sea of Stories, Salman Rushdie
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Sherman Alexie
Also, I'm going to see Harry Potter tomorrow, and that makes me happy. I should really re-read #7, or at least the last 1/3.
