All seven volumes of Proust. Really. (finished, but can't bring myself to take it off my list!)

Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders

The North Water, by Ian McGuire

currently on my kindle:

The Great Gatsby, F. Scot Fitzgerald

Meditations on the Tarot, Anonymous

The Other Einstein, Marie Benedict

Sonnets to Orpheus, Rainer Maria Rilke

The Last Days of Night, Graham Moore

about Energy Healing
