There are too many books on my ‘to read’ list. I’ve actually banned myself from buying any new books. That doesn’t preclude friends from loaning you books (which one friend did today). My focus at the moment is on Jonathan Franzen’s Strong Motion. So far, it hasn’t taken my breath away. I found The Corrections a startling and moving account of life so it’s a little disappointing in comparison but I’ve a way to go yet. After that, I’m into the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Jeffrey Eugenides called Middlesex. It’s taken me a while to get to this book and often, I don’t always enjoy books that win literary awards. We’ll see. I also recently saw a documentary on Walt Whitman so I’ve been reading some of his poetry. We never studied Walt at uni. It’s a shame really as some of his work is amazing. So, here’s the intimidating pile and actually, that’s only half of it! How big is yours?
