Reading

I'm making a lot of progress towards my 30 Books in 2009 goal. Only two more books to go and not a single Jane Austen has been read yet! I am bitterly disappointed in myself. How in the world do I keep not reading her books? You know what? As soon as I hit "publish" I'm going to go order all six of her books. That way I'll have no excuse - the books will be right there, within reach.

I joined a book club. Frankenstein is our first book. Thrilling!

Someday - oh maybe someday - maybe I will be on your list of authors you need to read. Meantime, add the books by Jasper Fforde to your list. And If I had to state a preference, I would advise you to read his last two, "The Big Over Easy" and "The Fourth Bear" first. By the time you get to the third book of his original series, you'll understand why. I hate to be cryptic, by I don't like doing spoilers.

Ooh, I love Jane Austen AND Jasper Fforde! But I recommend reading some of the classics before reading the Thursday Next novels - they're more fun that way.

Maybe, since you only have 2 books left, you could up your goal to 40 in 2009 and then cram in some Austen books. :)
