Anyone who reads this (all five of you) knows that I am an avid reader. I usually read a book a week or so, some faster, some a little slower.
But I hit a huge reading slump this past month. Everything I picked up … I just couldn’t get into it. I tried the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” series … for the third time. And made it about 20 pages. I know I would love them, but I keep getting sidetracked.
Then my stack of reserved library books started rolling in. And as I went in to pick them up, I would grab a random book or two. So, now, once again, I have four library books out on my nightstand, two on hold waiting for me, about five more where I am in line for them, and two books borrowed from friends. Along with the other like 40 books I’ve borrowed over the years, that sit in a basket, waiting for me.
I will never, ever live long enough to read all the books I want to read. It’s depressing if I think about it too much.
So, this is what I’m reading right now:
It’s the same guy who wrote “The Devil in the White City,” which I have been 100 pages into for a few years. Here is a review of “In the Garden of Beasts.”
So far, so good. I love most World War II books.
