Reading Aspirations

I have a few days off, and, naturally, I want to read maybe two books for each free day. My list of the most-important so far:

Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Claire of the Sea Light, Edwidge Danticat

A Tale for the Time Being, Ruth Ozeki

I'm sure there will be more. If I can find my copy of IQ84 I'll give that one another shot, since I stalled out the first time I tried.

Lots of things percolating over here, and more to come soon. Here's hoping it translates into more writing of whatever type my energy lends itself to these days.

Airmail: The Letters of Robert Bly and Tomas Transtromer


(I keep waiting for the paperback of the Bly/Transtromer letters, running my hands over the hardcover every time I'm in Books Inc, where they always have a copy. I think I'm going to have to cave sooner rather than later, while my rudimentary Swedish is still not-quite-stale and I have a frequent buyer card to redeem. Friday field trip!)
