Default What are you reading in 2007?

I just read In Case We're Separated by Alice Mattison

This was an excellent book of interrelated short stories. It looks at a family of Jewish immigrants in the 1920's and follows their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The first story is set in 1954, and the others go backwards and forwards from there.

At the end is a note to the reader which made me want to start over and read it again. (I did reread the first 2 stories.) : "This book's thirteen stories imitate in prose the thirteen stanzas of a double sestina, using repeated topics or tropes in something like the way a sestina - the poetic form used in the story "Brooklyn Sestina" - uses repeated words. In the changing order prescribed by the sestina pattern, each story includes a glass of water, a sharp point, a cord, a mouth, an exchange, and a map that may be wrong."

Fabulous book. I wish I'd asked for this instead of the books I got for xmas. I want to read everything she's ever written.

Default I love reading

Right now I'm trying to cram in some FUN reading before my last semester starts in a few days.

I'm reading Eragon, Sugar Busters, Prevention and I'm getting ready to start reading "Critical Care Nursing" Blech! That's when the fun reading will stop and I have to try and remember stuff

I'm reading The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu (translated by Royall Tyler). I've only read through the intro, but tonight I plan on really getting into it!

I'm reading YOU on a Diet - in bits and pieces and have just started Charlotte Gray's Flint and Feather, a biography of Pauline Johnson.

I am planning a library trip on Tuesday and will pick out a couple of "fun" reads - maybe the newest Elizabeth George. In the meantime I have three unread issues of New Yorker.

I just got back from the library - I don't start my new job until the 16th, so I've got a few books to go through. I'm reading Warrior's Honour, which is about what gives rise to ethnic warfare and its effect on the North American conscience, Running with Scissors (kinda like James Frey's books - no interest in it until I found out it might be mostly fabricated and not a memoir at all), The Pursuit of Happiness, and The Janissary Tree.
I'm so excited to be working rather than in school, because I won't feel as if my every waking moment should be spent on homework, and I can read in the evenings without feeling guilty!

I also tend to read more than one at a time. Yesterday I finished The Tuesday Erotica Club by Lisa Beth Kovetz. Then there are Dr. Phil's Love Smart because I'm love stupid and, of course, the South Beach Diet book that came on Thursday. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns...reading that one with a book club. Not sure what else I'll pick up. I have a few leadership/self-help books in a box that I haven't read yet, so maybe I'll pick up one of those.

I am in the middle of two books:

Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs and Cell by Stephen King.

I hope to have both of these finished in the next few weeks. I have a laundry list of books I would like to read
