Well, I definitely didn’t reach the 24 hour mark of #24in48, but I did get a ton of reading done since we last caught up. After finishing up what I started last week, I had the sudden urge to re-read When Women Were Birds by Terry Tempest Williams, which was just as brilliant the second time around. This is definitely the most re-reading I’ve done in recent years. Then I picked up Ernest Cline’s Armada…and set it down after about 90 pages. It was so bad, I just couldn’t bring myself to finish (and I loved Ready Player One). After that misstep, though, the reading was pretty great.
In Persuasion Nation by George Saunders
The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami
Beneath the Bonfire by Nickolas Butler
Dryland by Sara Jaffe
I also started Ghettoside by Jill Leovy, which I’ve been wanting to read since it was published earlier this year and just decided to jump in with a few other bloggers. I have a few great library books checked out, but I think I’ll be saving them for a little trip to the Eastern Shore next week (yes, like The Shore!)…I’m already plotting that reading strategy.
