Lindsey has written 25 entries about this goal

25. Executed on a Technicality by David Dow

Made me want to become a death penalty lawyer.

24. Paper Towns by John Green

A reread for comfort.

23. Jurors' Stories of Death by Benjamin Fleury-Steiner

Very interesting research on jurors’ reactions in capital trials, although I’m not sure if I buy the sociological interpretation that comes with it.

22. Spiderman Blue by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale

This was wonderful and sad, very sad.

21. Final Exposure: Portraits from Death Row by Lou Jones

A humanizing, though not excusing, look at Death Row inmates. Research for a paper I’m writing. The interviews and commentary from Jones were really insightful, and he handled this controversial material in a thoughtful way – he understood the weight of his material.

20. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

I was feeling a little lonely so I reread my favorite book. It was beautiful, again. I sat in the sun smoking a cigarette and I was very happy.

19. Indignation by Philip Roth

Very masculine writing style – reminded me a bit of Charles Bukowski, though much less brutal. I enjoyed this, especially toward the end.

18. Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

I liked this, but there was so much hype that I was sort of let down. I don’t think it was paced very well, but very good in other ways.

17. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

I had been meaning to read this for a while, as I’ve had little-to-no exposure to feminist literature. It was nice to have such a compelling story too.

16. The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Sparse, heartwrenching.
