Moore Reading List
I’ve been asked what books I have been reading (and I’ve expanded this books that I have in the pipeline from amazon). Readers are naturally curious as to the kind of books that authors read. An author’s reading preference often provides an insight into what they choose to put in (and exclude) from their books (if not a window into the author’s personality, taste, interests, etc).
I read a mix of fiction and non-fiction titles. I just finished Temple Grandin’s Animals in Translation. Insightful, quirky, original and thought provoking as the author is autistic and draws a comparison between the way the mind of an autistic person works and that of other animals. The current novel that I am reading is Charles McCarry’s Old Boys.
I usually read a number of books over the same time period. Here are recent titles that I’ve ordered from amazon and are next up on my list to read:
