My day in books

I just picked my books from the courier office this afternoon and a part of me is anxious to get started on reading the books. Now, here’s the gist; when you have so many titles where do you begin?

I just finished reading, The Shipping News by Annie Proulx, and in so reading it followed the life of Quoyle, who is as gentle as lamb yet gets the short end of the stick in love, work, family and has to start a new. I loved how each chapter opened with a description of a knot from The Ashley book of Knots.

Now, given the pace of this book I wasn’t looking to read something that would drain me-rather I wanted to read something fast paced, either a short romance novel (with a predictable ending) or a mystery/thriller…anything upbeat and I’ll start on The Prague Sonata by Bradford Morrow. I’ll probably take some time off writing this coming week and read more books, but until then, I guess one word at a time does it.
