I can't decide what is more exciting - finishing a book or choosing a new one. I'm hoping to finish my third book for the year (!) this week and have already picked out what I'll read next.
I'll be reading Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking. It's on loan from the library and ready to go. I first heard it mentioned by Annabel Crabb on her podcast and have also become curious about Joan Didion who pops up as a frequent reference on this style blog.
This year, aside from trying to finish a book per month, I'm also trying really hard to read more broadly and sample authors and titles I might not ordinarily. Currently I'm reading Richard Flanagan's The Narrow Road to the Deep North, which appeared on my desk at work last month just as I was finishing up a novel. My friend Larry loved it and passed it on.
P.S Here's what I was reading in January and here's how to find more time to read.
