When the sun rises tomorrow morning, I will have clocked 2,700 pages with my pal Roland Deschain and his ka-tet, finishing the fifth of seven books in the Dark Tower Series.
While in Bermuda, I swallowed Jincy Willett's new novel, The Writing Class whole. (Well, I nibbled on the beach and on planes and in airports, but I managed to finish it on vacation.) Have you read Jenny & the Jaws of Life? There seemed a time when nearly every author interview I read referred to the then out of print collection of short stories. Her writing style is delicious.
Twilight might be a book written just for little ol' me, bereft years after Buffy left the airwaves and I nearly passed it up, turned off by the buzz. (See also: Harry P.) I figured I better buy it now, before my saturation nerve gets twitchy.
And I picked up this gem from the library last weekend. I. can. hardly. wait.
So much reading, so little time...
