Our editors were asked what books they haven’t quite gotten around to reading yet.

Emily Doseck
Intern
Northern Michigan University

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman. It’s my best friend’s favorite and I’ve just never gotten around to it. But that’s the story for 87% of my bookcase sooo…

Molly Johnson
Intern
Saginaw, Michigan

Essentially my entire bookcase.

Bill Nyfeler
Associate Nonfiction Editor
Northern Michigan University

SPQR : A History of Ancient Rome by Mary Beard. If there was such thing as a break.

Ella Flores
Associate Editor
Marquette, Michigan

The Bible.

Charlie Edwards
Intern
Engadine, Michigan

The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google.

Sara Ryan
Associate Poetry Editor
Ann Arbor, Michigan

I have so many things that I have left unread, but I would love to dig into The Meaning of Everything: The Story of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester. Because dictionaries are cool.

Gabriel Calle
Graduate Teaching Assistant
Northern Michigan University

The Sun Also Rises.

Ginny MacDonald
Associate Nonfiction Editor
Dowagiac, Michigan

The Odyssey and The Iliad. Because I always think I should have read them.

Robert Ball
Intern
Dearborn, Michigan

Lolita has always interested me. A wholesome family tale for some light holiday reading.

Krys Malcolm Belc
Associate Fiction Editor, Fiction
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Waiting for Godot!

Jennifer Howard
Editor-in-Chief
Escanaba, Michigan

Alias Grace.

Ethan Brightbill
Associate Fiction Editor
Allentown, Pennsylvania

The Lady Matador’s Hotel by Cristina Garcia. I read Monkey Hunting in undergrad and loved it, so I bought her other book, yet I never even started it. No idea why. It’s probably fantastic.

Jacob Hall
Associate Fiction Editor
Decatur, Illinois

I have a collection of flash novellas from Rose Metal Press I stole from Jen last semester that I still haven’t read. I’ll give that back one day.
