I need to take stock of what I’ve read so far. I know it’s far from the designated goals, and I know I’m missing a couple of books in there, but here is the gist of it, what I can remember:

Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers
Quiet American, Graham Greene
Case Histories, Kate Atkinson
Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Haruki Murakami
American Vertigo, Bernard Henri-Levy
Highest Tide, Jim Lynch
Sputnik Sweetheart, Haruki Murakami
Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen
Man of My Dreams, Curtis Sittenfeld

That makes TEN books. I have a few more I could report on tomorrow, but... I may not. Sigh. Well, this isn’t a Reading Year for me, I guess. More like the Year of Expensive Purchases, like a house, and a super-fancy mountain bike that I have ridden exactly once, and the fact that I have to keep buying the garbage bags and paper towels for the book store myself if I want to maintain any semblance of tideness. So I guess I've been so busy spending money that I have not had a moment to read a book! I'm pretty much out of money, though, so I think I can get back into it soon. Reading, thankfully, is cheap entertainment.

So what did you think of AHWOSG?

What did you think of the Kate Atkinson novel? I was thinking of reading her new one, One Good Turn, but wanted to know what you thought of Case Histories before I jumped into it...
