I’ve got three must-read books this month.
- For book club: The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson (due Nov 24)
- For CBC Books discussion group on Goodreads: 419 by Will Ferguson (scheduled read, throughout the month)
- For Bookish Convergent Read on Goodreads: Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan (anytime this month).
I’d also kind of like to join in the Bookish read of Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs if I can get it from the library in time.
I’m just finishing up Bad Behavior, a group of short stories by Mary Gaitskill that are kind of annoying me, but possibly because they were written in the 80s and are mainly about depressed young women in New York or Chicago having unhappy sex. Sort of a downer Sex and the City.
