Every vote counts!

All right Wordwrighters, I need help making a very important decsion—what should I read next?

The choices are:

  • Moby-Dick
  • The Early Stories by John Updike
  • A Piece of My Heart by Richard Ford
  • Gallatin Canyon by Thomas McGuane
  • The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays by Oscar Wilde

Vote by posting a comment, and write-ins are welcome.

Being that you should be writing a short piece for test pattern pictures, I suggest the Wilde.

Moby Dick.

I'm with PoN-age on this one. Read about whales before they go extinct.

Tim said...

Wait -- you haven't read Earnest yet?

I would read that first. It's short and zippy. Then you can hunt the whale.

Gavin said...

No, no. I've totally read Earnest, and while I would almost certainly re-read it (yet again) if I were to dive into the Wilde volume, I would primarily be reading the book for the other plays, which I haven't read or seen.

I hate Moby Dick.

Kevin said...

SOunds to me like Danielle's on to something.....

Dan said...

Oh no, I'm sure I'm much too late, but you should read Moby Dick.

Then re-read Huckleberry Finn.

Then weigh in on one of the most pressing questions of our age: Which is the most significant (American) novel of the 19th century?
