Do You Read Naked?

17th October 2012

On Monday, I finished Where’d You Go Bernadette, which was my 43rd book of the year and my 701st listed  on Goodreads.  And it really needs a question mark at the end.  Because questions without question marks annoy me. As well as a grammatically incorrect title, it was the first hardcover book I’ve read in a while.  I read it naked.  Smooth and unadorned.  The book, not me.  I find book jackets flappy and useless, and lose them quickly.  On…

Reading Through The Stacks: An Open Apology To My Book Group

3rd September 2012

Since September has arrived, I figured I’d do another reading update.  I’ve finished seven books since the last round-up post: Before I Go To Sleep –  I did end up liking this a lot.  I thought about it for awhile after the last page, which I suppose is a good sign.  I’ve had more vivid dreams since I read it, which is an even better sign.  I stayed up late to finish it, which is maybe the best sign. Dandelion…

Reading Through The Stacks: Loyalty To Books

24th July 2012

I’ve read 31 books this year. And started countless others. Recent complete reads have been: The Magicians – To me, this is Harry Potter on speed mixed with The Never-Ending Story. Maybe that’s just me. But it did end. And now I have to read the sequel. Damn. 13 Little Blue Envelopes – Because I too traipsed around Europe as a young person. And I have an Aunt who passed away, who kind of guides me through life. There aren’t…

Reading Through The Stacks: The Reading Room

5th June 2012

Since the office/writing room/reading room has been reclaimed from the cat, my reading speed has improved.  I can read 376 words per minute.  Staples says so. What’s your reading speed? Recent reads have been: The Art of Fielding – I was right there with this, until the end.    That seems to be my go-to one-liner recently.  It just felt too neat.  More verbose ‘review’ may be coming soon! Full Dark House – This one I got from a Goodreads group…

Reading Through the Stacks: Every Letter Was a Love Letter

8th May 2012

Yesterday was spent trading notes with Sarge to save his hay-fevered voice.  When was the last time you wrote a love note or letter? Somewhere between note 1 and 17, I finished reading my 20th book of the year. Recent reads have been:  The Marriage Plot – Read this in three days.  The first two I was right there with it.  Yesterday, not so much.  I was just happy to read complex sentences again. Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades,…
