When times get hectic, there simply aren’t enough hours per day to keep up with all things that I enjoy.  Watching television, exercising, sleeping, keeping in touch with friends and family – all of these seem to fall by the wayside. Reading, however, does not.  There’s still enough time each day to carve out a small space for curling up with a good book.

Blogging about said reading…well, that’s just not as important.

Having just completed an intensive three-week work assignment and now preparing to leave the country for a family wedding, my free time hasn’t yet materialized.  However, I fully expect to be back with more on-line literary musings by the middle of September.

In the meantime, my reading list for the next few weeks includes the following possibilities:

  • Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis
  • The Talisman and Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub
  • Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
  • Dangerous Laughter by Steven Millhauser

I probably won’t be able to get through all five books considering my time restraints, although I will have a few long airplane rides.  Suggestions or comments on any of these would be most appreciated.
