What are YOU reading? Any good?
I'm two-thirds of the way through Neil Gaiman's American Gods (enjoyable lunchtime reading and I'm spinning it out) for my book club; nearly finished On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan (a free review copy which I successfully willed into my life after dipping into Rhoda Byrnes The Secret). Am reading the McEwan very slowly to appreciate fine craftsmanship.
The World's Shortest Stories edited by Steve Moss, and an impulse buy at Kinokuniya, is perfect bedtime reading as I usually fall asleep after a page or two and these stories are only 55 words long! (The full title of the book is 27 words!)
I'm also reading A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah (impulse buy in Times*) since it explores the same territory as Uzodinma Iweala' s Beasts of No Nation which I'm currently reviewing. I have Antares' Tanah Tujuh to finish and Salleh Ben Jonad's collection of poems Adam's Dream (both available from Silverfish).
Books book everywhere, and never a thought to think! (Who was it said that?)
Will no doubt be blogging about these titles in more detail later.
