Library Raid on Saturday, 28th March 2009

Library Booty:

  1. Paper Towns, John Green
  2. Nation. Terry Pratchett
  3. Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow, Peter Høeg
  4. The Quiet American, Graham Greene
  5. Up at the Villa, W. Somerset Maugham

I'm indulging in my bad habit of moving back and forth between books. This is why I often end up finishing very few books, or several books within the same week. But all in all, it was a good reading weekend. I'm now actively reading Nation, Paper Towns and Shock Doctrine.

The fact that I am actually reading more is a positive sign that life is returning to some sort of balance. I still miss my life back home though: I miss my quiet but nonetheless existant social life - and my practice.

The kids and I are listening to "Nation" on audiobook and really enjoying it!

Really looking forward to your final thoughts on Nation and Paper Towns.

Fantastic loot! I'm glad to hear that things seem to be settling down for you a little bit D-O!

the couch for me always had a stack of books. when i got tired of reading one, i'd pick up another, then go back to the earlier ones. i'd usually have 5-7 going at a time. right now? i've got three going... and also the ultra fine print for the stax soul singles vol. 3. I read less now... but its like an old friend... easy to pick up where we left off.
