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.
