November came and went and I never got around to reading Joseph O'Neill's Netherland, The Migrant Bookclub's October & November pick. Did you? I got 50 pages into it and really, really enjoyed it but got distracted and started reading other stuff which turned out to be too good to put down*.
Tonight my sister is coming to visit and I get a little break from work, so in addition to a whole lot of cocktails and parties, we also plan a whole lot of quiet time at home: fuzzy socks, and good food, and hot chocolate and, yes, BOOKS.
In addition to Netherland, I will be tackling The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides and figuring out how to kick off my year of Eastern European classics. It's going to be a good time, y'all!
Do you guys have any time to read during the holidays? What's on your list?
*Read Mark Behr's The smell of apples. It will break your heart and you will mourn it forever.
