Starting in November, I’ll be participating in Pajiba’s Cannonball Read, which has been changed this year from 100 books read in a year to 52. Which means that when I read a book, I’m going to write and post a review of it on this here blog.
You might wonder what I’ll be reading. Well, I always felt like a terrible English major for not reading certain classic books. This might help me take care of that. I might go shopping at M’s house (really, she has a LOT of books) and see what interests me. There have been some Shakespeare plays I always meant to get to, the ones that weren’t addressed in my classes. Who knows! But I’m really tired of reading research articles for my thesis. And I need something to do when I take a break other than watching old episodes of The Office or playing stupid games.
And if anyone has suggestions of books they love, please send them my way. You know how when you go to a bookstore or a library, every idea you ever had about books you wanted just flies away? That happens to me all the time. I don’t even know where to start, except by looking through my own bookcases and grabbing the stuff I’ve been ignoring for years. So help a girl out.
