On Deck

At any given time, I am usually reading one book with three or more sitting on my shelf waiting to be read next. Trying to tidy up the house yesterday, I realized I have more than just a few books lying around that I have not read. In fact, the amount of books I have purchased lately but have not read is slightly overwhelming. In no particular order, here is what I have to choose from next:

Rin Tin Tin, Susan Orlean
1Q84, Haruki Murakami
The Marriage Plot, Jeffery Eugenides
Believing is Seeing, Errol Morris
Zone One, Colson Whitehead
The Family Fang, Kevin Wilson
C, Tom McCarthy
The Bonfire of the Vanities, Tom Wolfe
Elia Kazan, Richard Schickel
The Steal, Rachel Shteir
The Wild Things, Dave Eggers

I will probably go with the Eugenides next, then Murakami. Until I finish at least 3 of these, I am not allowing myself anymore purchases.

(Don't believe the above statement!)


  1. Oh! So happy to hear you're going to be reading The Marriage Plot. I picked it up last week and am loving it! Let me know what you think once you get into it.

    I was all kinds of interested in 1Q84 as well, until the AV Club posted an extremely unfavorable review today. I need to block their opinion and give it a try.

    (Apologies for being a random commenter. Your blog was recommend by Julianne.)

  2. I am excited about reading The Marriage Plot also. I will post a date soon; it will probably be the second Monday in January. Thanks for stopping by!
