Books to read and re-read over winter break

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
I've read this book probably three times, but still find it a quite enjoyable 4th or 5th read.

Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger
I read Franny last semester and hope to finish the short novella by reading Zooey. I heard Zooey Deschanel was named after this Salinger book; I don't know if it's true.

Waltzing Again: New Interviews with Margaret Atwood

You Are Happy (poetry) by Margaret Atwood

The Collected Gwendolyn Brooks (poetry)

A Widow for One Year by John Irving
Been working on this one for awhile. I love his frank style.

Let's see if I can finish all these half-read books by next Monday!
