A few of these goals were inspired by blog posts I wrote in February as well as the RGRC. I definitely have an eclectic list going so I’m interested to see where the month takes me.
1. Finish Shame
I wrote about this book in this blog post, and actually began reading this novel at the end of February. In a postcolonial literature class, I read Salman Rushdie’s Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights. After discussing that novel, I immediately picked up used copies of a couple more of his works. I’m only about one-sixth of the way into the novel, but I can tell I’m going to love Shame just as much.
2. Read On the Road
I purchased Jack Kerouac’s novel On the Road awhile ago but never got around to reading it. I’m not sure if I purchased it because it was on the RGRC list or if that was just a coincidence. Either way, I’ll get to cross another off the list and broaden my American literature horizon.
3. Read All the Missing Girls
I wrote about this book in a recent blog post about crime books I’m looking forward to reading. I picked up a copy at a B&N run (and it was also autographed copy!). I’ve heard some great things about this novel so I’m eager to get started.
Here’s an outtake…my cat really wanted to get into the picture…
What are you planning to read this month?
