Once again disco music is thumping again. I always seem to write during the Tea Dance next door. This is a short blog post because I need to get back to reading. Yes, I’m reading, all day. It’s bliss. I have no other commitments, save a noon-time court time with friends. Vacation is a really new concept to me, so unbroken time is a revelation to me.
I have been reading adult books. I feel like I’m sneaking them. I should be reading kids’ books, but I am out of touch with the adult book world and I miss it. There have been some great galleys; the new Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood, harkens back to The Handmaid’s Tale. Very good, long in a great way, and a really good read. I finished that yesterday and now I’m sinking my teeth into Her Fearful Symmetry, Audrey Niefenegger’s book coming out in September. I’m only eighty pages in, and loving it.
Next on my list is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I want to finish this in time for next week’s release of the sequel, The Girl Who Played with Fire. I think it’s really clever of me to read the book now so there is absolutely no waiting for the next one — this way I’m avoiding the agony of waiting a year for the next hot book.
So, go read. Find some time, be it raining or sunny, and give yourself a "well day." Instead of calling in sick, call in well and go read.
