It's been a while.
Since my last post, I finished the Time Traveler's Wife (it was ok, and raised questions about free will), read Guards! Guards! in the Discworld series (it was funny), and then tried to read a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
It's not a long story. But it's basically an essay in the form of a novel, which I find really boring. I just couldn't finish the thing.
So I gave up on a book for the first time since I started the reading list.
I read Eric in the Discworld series (it was very funny and also a quick read). But once I was done with it, I found I just didn't want to return to the list. I wanted to re-read The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (which is on the list, actually, but re-reading it is not part of the plan). And now I want to read Fables graphic novels. And I think after that I want to read A Game of Thrones, or maybe something by China Mieville.
Clearly my mind is wandering.
So for now, I'm taking a break from the list, reading only for enjoyment. I'll be back later.
