Ebb and flow

May 11, 2010

The fun part of reading for pleasure is getting to pick what to read next.  Therefore, barring library deadlines or book club selections, I don’t usually plan ahead what I’m going to read next until I finish my current book. If I plan ahead and create any kind of reading agenda, it always starts to feel like school, or some kind of obligation that saps some of the enjoyment out of reading. I like my reading continuum be organic and intuitive, and it often ends up that I go through phases.

I’ve been drawn to lighter fare since finishing As I Lay Dying. I have Tropic of Cancer on the go, but it seems to lend itself more to small bites. I read a humourous non-fiction book about the Eurovision Song Contest and then got into quite a Crime kick, reading half a dozen mysteries and thrillers, none of which are on the 1000 Novels list.dog eats homework

I suppose this is my long-winded way of saying that the dog ate my homework. But I’m not in school anymore so it doesn’t matter and I can read what I like! So there. I could trot out a book I have read previously and hash out a post about it, as I have done the past couple of weeks, but I’m not finding it terribly motivating. We’ll see what next week brings.
