What book are you reading?

Michelle Lee @michelle unpluggedBooks I have with bookmarks in them.

I made a list.

{I said no laughing!}

My list:

The Ballad of the Sade Cafe

The Yiddish Policemen's Union

A Confederacy of Dunces

Of Human Bondage

The Power and the Glory

The Brothers Karamazov

The Idiot

War and Peace

Atlas Shrugged

The End of the Affair

I know that is a vast assortment of literature but that's what I like about it.  A few of those I will have to start from the beginning because they were Pre-Ulysses.  I like that, Pre-Ulysses.  It suits life because for six months I read and studied Ulysses.  “Oh yeah, I did that Pre-Ulysses.”

And I've marked a couple off the list to not finish or at least hold off on.

IE:  Of Human Bondage and Atlas Shrugged.

Right now I am focused on finishing one book at a time so I will get  A Confederacy of Dunces read over the weekend if not sooner.  It is a rather amusing book and I've laughed out loud several times while shaking my head.  It was even sweeter seeing this book at B & N on the “Everyone Must Read” table.  {I had bought my copy weeks earlier.}

I don't know why I have so many books with bookmarks in them.  Perhaps I just need an appropriate book for a certain time or experience at that moment in time.  Nodding.  That has to be it.  It's nice knowing that each books brings me a little bit of pleasure and I can just pick it up at any moment and be there again.
