What are you currently reading? I’m into the second chapter of Possessing Genius: The Bizarre Odyssey of Einstein’s Brain by Carolyn Abraham, the first book on my Off the Shelf Challenge list. I really am enjoying it; I just keep getting distracted!
And what is this distraction? This week, I’ve been distracted by Caitlin Shetterly’s Made for You and Me: Going West, Going Broke, Finding Home, another e-ARC courtesy of NetGalley.
What did you recently finish reading? A couple days ago, I finished the NetGalley e-ARC of The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus by Sonya Sones. Scheduled for release in April 2011, this is Sones’ first novel for adults. It’s a novel-in-poems about a woman dealing with her ailing mother, her impending empty nest, and her own aging body. It’s a lot funnier than that description makes it sound.
What do you think you’ll read next? I have yet another NetGalley e-ARC, Jane Austen: A Life Revealed by Catherine Reef. Scheduled for release in April 2011, this is billed as the first young adult trade biography on Austen. Somehow, I have made it to my 30s without ever reading any Austen, so this should be especially interesting. I do have the complete works of Austen on the nook; think I’ll be inspired to read them after this?
