I have a library card and use it mostly on the Blue Ridge Download Consortium website. Sad fact, the online library has far more titles to browse than does the real one. Anyhoo, I put a hold on a few books last week, figuring they’d come in over a staggered period. But no. They came all at once:
a. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, an absolutely fascinating story of how one woman’s decision to climb down the escape ladder of an interstate alters the world.
b. God is an Englishman by R. F. Delderfield. The first book of a family series I’d heard about and always wanted to read.
c. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. Giving it a try.
d. SevenEves by Neal Stephenson. C’mon, it’s Neal Stephenson.
e. The Winter Warrior by James Wilson. Swords. Normans. Saxons. What more do you need to know?
f. Every Dead Thing by John Connolly. Heard about this guy so decided to give him a go.
So I’ve now got to read 4000 pages in about two weeks. And football season just started. And I’ve got Netflix.
Life is hard.
