This is a meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. that I learned about via my subscription to The Reviewing Shelf. I thought this week I would play along. The idea is that you should answer three questions:
What are you reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
So you know that what I just read is The Piano Teacher by Elfriede Jelinek. And you know I bailed quickly on Fiji. The reason I’m doing this post is that it might be a while til my next post because what I’m now reading is Nicholas Nickleby by Dickens, which is almost a thousand pages. I read a lot, but that’s a long book, and I do have a job, a four year old, a husband I like to talk some times, and it’s March Madness time (for those not in 15 bracket pools currently, this is the amazing NCAA basketball tournament that takes over my life for two long weekends each spring, ever since some guys at a foster care agency where I was a supervisor got me to join their pool one year). And what will I probably read next? A Thousand and One Nights which, depending on what version I choose, will range from a few hundred pages to thousands. So I might not be stopping by much. I’ll try to keep you entertained in some other ways while I get through these wonderful LONG classics. Meanwhile, please play along in the comments section. I would LOVE to know what you are reading!
