It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. Every so often I am able to join in!
Well, I’m still plugging away at Dear Life by Alice Munro. I think short stories may just not be for me… of course I was busier than I expected to be last week and haven’t had much time to devote to reading since I started it. Dear Life is well written with deep, emotional stories—I’m just having a hard time getting through it, mostly trouble concentrating and remembering all the little details.
It’s unusual that I will read more than one book at a time, but last night I did start reading Carole King’s recent memoir A Natural Woman. My mom loaned it to me at Thanksgiving and I want to finish it (~450 pages) before I see her again in mid-January.
I think I might be a little all-read-out, too… maybe needing a mental break. I have next week off work for the holiday and I plan to read a lot but my mind is just exhausted from this semester. Movie marathons sound really good to me lately, and normally I can hardly sit still through even one movie!
