Reading for Me

The Books I Have Read…..Just for Me

Update – 11/2/13

No reason to give excuses here. It simply turned out to be a matter of personal taste. After slogging through Clear and Present Danger for nearly 3 weeks and roughly 350 pages, I decided that it was proving to be a laborious read that I was not enjoying. So I followed my own advice and closed the cover firmly last night. It was time for a trip to the library today anyway, so I picked up three new books. I’m hoping that at least one of them grabs my interest this month! October has not been a successful month for my reading life.

What books now sit on my desk? I grabbed a biography of the composer Bela Bartok as well as Life Support, a work of inspirational fiction by Robert Whitlow. To round out my stack, I randomly selected a novel listed on the Modern Library’s Top 100 NovelsAngle of Repose by Wallace Stegner.  I’m not going to read exclusively from the list, but I think it will be an interesting journey to work through in the coming years.  We’ll see what sparks my interest and how far I get on the Modern Library list.
