Default Why do I read this stuff?


Honestly, this is not my preferred reading material, but tonight I finished The Twelve, the second book of a post-apocalypse vampire trilogy thing. Whatever.

I read about 2 thirds of the first book (The Passage) and really struggled to WANT to continue reading. I enjoy the post-apocalyptic concept, but I just didn't care about the characters in this... At all. So, I just gave up after a while.

Default New Ian McErwan novel



I have to admit, this is the first Ian McEwan novel I've ever read. Just recently published, Sweet Tooth is the story of a young woman in early 1970s Britain who, after having an affair with a much older man, begins employment with MI5. I could go on, but I'll leave the novel's plot twists to you. I found it a little slight, and a little too clever by half. But at least entertaining.

I predict Carey Mulligan will be cast as the protagonist in the inevitable screen adaptation.

Default Race and class in London



I strongly disliked Zadie Smith's NW, an impressionistic novel involving several people who live, or come from, a poorer area of London. I could not understand why the characters felt the way they did. Really, what was everyone's problem? I couldn't wait to finish it.

For pleasure:

Boning up on my Realmslore for The Sundering. I'd never read The Avatar Crisis.


For class:

I'm actually surprised at how much I'm enjoying this as well. I'm only about 50 pages in, but it's certainly a gripping read. Much better than Night, which I could barely make myself slog through.

If the only reading you ever do is internet forums, except maybe for your reverence for Tolkien or some other such drivel I see posted here, then Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore is for you. It won't tax your imagination. You'll smile at the protagonist's endearment to a fantasy series. You'll eat up the descriptions of Google endeavours. You'll think you're learning something about the history of printing. But really, this book is strictly escapist fiction to while away a few days, but nothing more.

Just finishing up The Violinists Thumb by Sam Kean. Not as engaging as The Disappearing Spoon, but worth the pick up. Then onto Geography

I picked up a couple graphic novels last week and am deciding which one to read first. I also got a Brad Thor novel and will probably sandwich it between the two. (so I don't tire of the genre)

i bought a Kindle in March and read "Into the Wild" (love the film and the book) but then i got promoted at work and that sucks up most of my time and my Kindle sat collecting dust. i used to love to read as a kid, and i'm eager to start up again. i still enjoy film and tv shows, but i certainly don't connect with them like i used.

hoping to fall back in love with literature again

starting with a mammoth... "My Mutual Friend" by Charles Dickens!
