I am over half done with Letting Go. By the time I go to bed tonight I ought to be up to page 400 at least (of 630). I’ve placed an Amazon order that includes PR’s third book, When She Was Good. Happily that one is shorter.
Now that I’ve finished the Shakespeare book, my new lunchtime reading is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, which had been recommended to me by many people including my aunt, one of my most reliable book-recommenders. When I finish Letting Go then I can let myself read the last Percy Jackson book and the first of Riordan’s sequel series. That’ll take me up to 14 books for 2011. Not too shabby. On deck I have Vonnegut’s Mother Night, and The Count of Monte Cristo. I’d like to scatter in a few classics that I haven’t read.
It’s funny. Earlier while I was reading Letting Go one of the characters was contemplating starting a project in which she read all of Faulkner’s books in chronological order! Looks like I’m not the first to come up with this idea (not that I thought I was, natch).
