Stop me before I read again!

The pile of books on my bedside table is growing shockingly huge, so I decided to see what I had gotten myself into by compiling an orderly list. Behold, my summer reading list. I'm in the middle of at least half of these, but if I finish them all by autumn it really will be a miracle.

Barclay, Robert. Barclay's Apology.
Bloom, Harold. Jesus and Yahweh: The Names Divine.
Bonhoeffer, Dietrich. A Testament to Freedom.
Diamond, Jared. Guns, Germs, and Steel.
Gould, Stephen Jay. The Flamingo's Smile.
ibid, The Panda's Thumb
ibid, Wonderful Life.
Ibsen, Henrik. An Enemy of the People.
Lewis, C. S. The Four Loves.
ibid, The Problem of Pain.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia. Love in the Time of Cholera.
McCarthy, Cormac. The Road.
McEwan, Ian. Atonement.
Miles, Jack. God, A Biography.
Proust, Marcel. Swann's Way.
Tolstoy, Leo. Anna Karennina.
Wilde, Oscar: The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Woolf, Virginia. Mrs. Dalloway.

#$%#$#! is all I can say about that. Someone, please cut me off. Or, failing that, egg me on by telling me about one of these books that you've read (or sharing your own summer reading list!)
