Too Many...Again


I've done it again. I'm in the middle of too many books. Last time I did this, I ALMOST got through them all. Anna Karenina has become the bane of my existence. OK. Maybe not THAT dramatic.

Here's my new list:

1. The Likeness - Tana French (Finished March 20, 2009)

2. If on a winter's night a traveler - Italo Calvino (Finished March 25, 2009)

3. 1984 - George Orwell (Finished April 15, 2009)

4. The Five-Forty-Five to Cannes - Tess Uriza Holthe

5. Foundation - Isaac Asimov

6. The Yacoubian Building - Alaa Al Aswany

7. Humboldt's Gift - Saul Bellow

8. The Dracula Dossier - James Reese

9. Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy

Since I'm half-way through pretty much all of these...I think I can finish pretty soon. What do you think?


  1. I do the same thing and I always think I'm so close to the end of so many of them that surely I'll finish SOMETHING soon. Right?

  2. wow! I don't know how you do it but I can never read more than one book at a time... thus the slow reading. I've always wanted to read Leo Tolstoy but I always fear that its a going to be a heavy read... :)

  3. Hi! Love your blog and am presenting you the Lovely Award. Don't know if you've received this yet but congrats! I'm glad to make friends with another city blogger!

  4. Good luck! I am incapable of reading more than one book at a time. I feel like I'm cheating! The internet keeps me away from my book enough as it is.
    I hope you can cross some of those titles off you list this week.

  5. Holy Moly that's a lot of books to be half way through.
