Blood Meridian

by: Cormac McCarthy

Number of Pages: 368

Reason Book Was Chosen: I had originally slated Daniel Kahneman's new book Noise in this spot, but it will not be released until 2021. I've put Blood Meridian in its place. I read this in 2017 as part of the first year of this project and it is the book I have hated the most. I recorded a podcast with Jason and didn't give the book a proper covering because I hated it so much. That's not fair to my podcast audience, so I'm re-reading my most despised book of the project to re-record the podcast episode. This is either a study in masochism or perhaps I'll gain a better appreciation during a second reading.
