I am seduced by the thought of reading…but recently I’ve been on a stop/start program.
Here’s the list of books currently in progress:
Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Anne Frank: The Life, The Book, The Afterlife by Francine Prose
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
Sun Stone and Shadows: 20 Great Mexican Short Stories, edited by Jorge F. Hernandez
I’m just not seeming to finish any of them, which is very strange for me because, believe it or not, I’m really enjoying each of them. It feels like a nice mix. Maybe I just need to read 200 things at a time? Have you guys ever gone a start/stop program like that? Did you actually successfully complete the books you were reading?
How’s about you guys? Finish anything recently?
