Are you currently reading several books?
I nearly always have a number of books on the go. At the moment I'm reading Life and Fate by Vasily Grossman, Ian Kershaw's biography of Hitler and Panic Room, a mystery story by Robert Godard. I didn't plan it but that spread of genres is fairly typical of my interests. I'd be interested to know what other people are reading.
I'm currently half way thru three. My town has a fantastic used book sale twice a year and I'm still working on my hoard from April. I found some old favorites like Robinson Crusoe. Read it first as a kid, found it in Grandma's basement and spent a whole day down there reading it. Fond memory.
A walk in the woods by Bill Bryson. Very funny and much better than the movie. Hiking at least part of the AT is on my bucket list now.
I know why the caged bird sings. Angelou. Read it in Swedish the first time as a teenager. Love it even more now. It's very funny.
The past few years I’ve been horrible with this. It wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t forget to finish half the books I started before I got distracted by the shiny new story.
Right now I am reading The Better Angels of our Nature by Steven Pinker, Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer, and I just started re-reading Papillon by Henri Charriere since they are making another movie about it.
