sure sign of the apocalypse
I checked two books out of the library yesterday, from the fiction section! They're not for a class...I checked them out under the assumption that I'd have -- gasp -- some free time. Now, Life of Pi
(by Yann Martel) and Trumpet
(by Jackie Kay) are sitting on top of my copy of Neal Stephenson's Quicksilver
, which I bought myself for Christmas and have managed to read all of 31 pages. There are 916, total. Not good, especially when it's part one of trilogy, all equally as long. I like Stephenson, always have, but the first 31 pages of this book have seemed especially sluggish. Maybe the relatively short novels from my library trip will jumpstart my reading skills.
