Progress Report: Read More

New to the List:

  • The Divine Comedy: Paradiso by Dante Alighieri
  • Moby Dick by Herman Melville
  • A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

This was a great set of works. I finally finished off the Divine Comedy by finishing the journey with Dante through Paradise. I would definitely recommend this to lovers of literature. Next I read Moby Dick and I can’t believe I hadn’t read it before now. It has to be one of the best books I have written. As I’ve said before, I feel like I was a sailor in a past life. I love everything that has to do with the ocean and I have always imagined myself sailing a boat around the world (something I should probably add to my bucket list). Moby Dick definitely allowed me to picture myself out on the high seas aboard the Pequod having adventures with Ishmael and Queequeg; I would highly recommend this as well. Finally, I have jumped on the bandwagon and started reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series. I went through A Game of Thrones in about four days and I am definitely addicted! I can’t believe how much I love it (and hate it). Tyrion is my favorite by far and I didn’t think it was possible to despise a character as much as Dolores Umbridge, but congratulations Joffrey Baratheon, I HATE YOU! I am so excited to start the next book!

If anyone has suggestions for other great reads let me know 🙂
