Organized According to Literature

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Because I am an unabashed bookworm and a stickler for organization and this blog has become a day-to-day chronicle of my life, I thought of organizing three years' worth of posts according to the titles of some of the books that rocked my world. Here are the book titles that I used as labels (and what the posts under them are about):

  • A Confederacy of Dunces (John Kennedy Toole). About men and how they can be such dunces at times
  • A Frolic of Her (His) Own (William Gaddis). About memes
  • A Moveable Feast (Ernest Hemingway). About food
  • A Sentimental Education (Vladimir Nabokov). About school life
  • Beloved (Toni Morrison). About D
  • Bleak House (Charles Dickens). About how bleak the Philippines can sometimes be
  • In the Beauty of the Lilies (John Updike). About poetry and passages from books that I find beautiful.
  • In This Our life (Ellen Glasgow). About everyday life
  • Infinite Jest (David Foster Wallace). About being facetious
  • Little Women (Luisa May Alcott). About women and our frivolous ways
  • Look Homeward, Angel (Thomas Wolfe). About home and family

  • The Handmaid’s Tale (Margaret Atwood). About work

  • The Pursuit of Love (Nancy Mitford). About love and relationships
  • The Uncommon Reader (Alan Bennet). About books and reading
  • This Side of Paradise (F. Scott Fitzgerald). About things and places in the country that I find beautiful.
