Sorry I missed last week but I was busy and didn't read much anyway. It's hard to believe it's March already. I don't know where the time goes! I am looking forward to spring though, even with the hayfever it brings with it.
As for my current reading, I'm almost done Housekeeping vs. The Dirt by Nick Hornby. This second collection of his 'Stuff I've Been Reading' monthly column in the Believer magazine is just as amusing to read as the first one was. It's what to pick up next that I'm having a bit of trouble with. Too many choices!
Here are some of the books I could or should be reading in the next few months.
Beloved by Toni Morrison - which I was supposed to read last month for My Year of Reading Dangerously but I just wasn't in the mood after The French Revolution in A Tale of Two Cities.
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk - At the moment I'm possibly leaning toward this one or The Road. Not entirely sure why though.
The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney
Surfacing (or something else by Atwood)
Suite française – Irène Némirovsky
Mercy Among the Children – David Adams Richards
..or something else entirely!
Any thoughts on what I should read next?
I'm off to bed now where I hope to finish the Hornby. I guess I'll have to see which one appeals most to me tomorrow. Mine's already over but I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
