Things Ahead

I've been busy lately!

+ Check out my thoughts on Bound for Canaan: my seventh non-fic read of the year.

+ I *finally* finished Pamuk's The Black Book. Thank God. Look for a not-very-nice review later.

+Speaking of which, I realise that I'm not caught up on my Reading Across Borders reviews. So, I'd like to put up ones of Madame Bovary and Palace Walk soon. Also, I'm switching out the Achebe for Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Partly because I've already read an Achebe, partly because of Bookie's excellent review.

+I'm still going strong w/ Virginia Woolf and Lonesome Dove, my chunkster challenges. It's a little frustrating, because I've already read a lot of 400 plus page books this year. But I'm going to stick to my original choices. And, I'm really enjoying these two selections.

+On top of the TBR pile? Love in the Time of Cholera for Reading Across Borders, and I'm going to develop a non-fic personal challenge to replace the classics challenge in my side bar. I know that there's a non-fic challenge floating around here somewhere, but by the months it occurs I should be in the Peace Corps. So, I need to do it now.

I haven't even started on any of my Chunkster picks. I hope you'll enjoy Love in the Time of Cholera. One of my all time favorites. Looking forward to your review of Pahmuk's book.

Hey Eva:

You're a braver woman than I for tackling Marquez--I've had a hard time with him.

I was wondering if you might be able to update your link to my site in your blogroll--I'm now at superfastreader.com (no wordpress anymore), and I'm using the title Reading is my Superpower.

Thanks so much! I love how you include favorite passages from the books you read, by the way--
