Twelve favorite Road Narrative Spectrum books read in 2018: 12/19/18
Fridays I post a review of a book that qualifies for my road narrative spectrum project. This is a research / narrative analysis project I'm doing for fun. It stems from a thesis I had planned in 1997 when I thought I would be continuing on to a PhD program. When that didn't happen, I shelved the project for 18 years.
I restarted the project in 2015. I started by re-reading things I remembered reading at the first go. Initially my project was going to be film and television based. Since then my interests have gone more literary. I run a book blog. So this time around, my projecti s primarily book based and fiction based.
In 2018 I had a breakthrough in how my project is organized and how it is focused. Midway through I realized I could quantify and catalog the books I've been reading in terms of web-safe colors. I could have done anything, but more than twenty years of also working as a web designer and a painter has made me a person who things in color and can think in hexadecimal colors.
The following twelve books are ones that helped me make progress with my project. Click on the titles to read the reviews.
