i am currently reading three books - - a sure sign of the apocalypse
I have not been a reader, really, for many years. Until last Christmas, I would have said "I'm not a reader", but since I've been reading in the last 7 months, I've had to change it. Really though, the only things I would read were ESPN The Magazine
and Reader's Digest
(which I have loved since I was a kid and my dad gives me a subscription every year, so don't make fun!).
At this very moment, I have bookmarks in these books:
, by Jackie Kay
- Eats, Shoots & Leaves
, by Lynne Truss
, by George Eliot
, the bane of my existence, the embodiment of why I left grad school oh so many years ago. So, why on earth did I check it out of the library, especially when I have 1800+ pages of Neal Stephenson books sitting on my coffeetable, unread? Well, my friend Mel settled on it as her favorite book to teach
. I figured after 12 years, I'd give it another go. I have an ulterior motive for trying to get through it, though. More on that, later.
