June Reading Plan

I'm carrying two books over from May:

THE CITY AND THE CITY by China Miéville - Looking forward to starting this, after hearing a lot about it.

GREEN MARS by Kim Stanley Robinson - I'm a little less than halfway through this big book. I'd like to try finishing it this month.

Since I know I have a busy month planned, I'll just add one more book to the list:

36 ARGUMENTS FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD by Rebecca Newberger Goldstein - Eleanor Brown did a joint book event with Goldstein a few months ago. My mom attended, bought this book, and recommended it. It's a novel about academics debating religion. Flipping through the book, I see lots of typographical gimmicks like email messages and lists, and I love that sort of thing.

Good Stuff Out There:

→ Jessica Francis Kane, author of THE REPORT, which I wrote about in April, discusses the label and nature of historical fiction. (Thanks, The Millions!)

→ Artist Chip Zdarsky presents posters for children's stories reimagined as Hollywood films. (Thanks, Nathan Bransford!)
