A List of Hurricane Irene Reading lists

If you enjoy reading Electric Literature, join our mailing list! We’ll send you the best of EL each week, and you’ll be the first to know about upcoming submissions periods and virtual events.

Apparently reading lists are a part of disaster preparation. Here’s a quick rundown in case you pass a bookstore on your way to higher ground:

Six Shorts to Read During the Hurricane from The New Yorker

Hurricane Reads from The Millions

Teju Cole’s Top 10 Novels of Solitude from The Guardian (in case you get stuck in a storm shelter)

The iPod of the Hurricane also from The New Yorker (should you need to drown out the howling of the wind)

Found any others or have a list of your own? Let us know in the comments.
