As promised, the first Thursday of the month is our reading check in. While you’re enjoying your lunch hour (or couple of lunch minutes if your workplace is anything like mine), let us know what books are on your nightstand.
My book club meets tonight to discuss The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, which, at the time I’m writing this, I’m not quite finished with. Next month we’re reading Maus I by Art Spiegleman, which I’ve read several times and is a good way to introduce the medium of the graphic novel to an audience that isn’t familiar with them, or thinks comics is all Brenda Starr Sunday strips. (Not that I have anything against Brenda Starr, intrepid reporter.)
I’ve also managed to stack a couple of dousies in my reading list for this month – I got both Far From the Tree (945 pages) and Going Clear (430 pages) from the library recently. While I’m excited to read them, I think I’m gonna have to cry uncle and accept I can’t possibly cram 1,500 pages of reading into my three week check out period.
