Two books...

I read two books between the 19th and the 24th exceeding what I originally intended to do. "Vintage Murakami," an anthology of Haruki Murakami's work went down in almost exactly 24 hours. The other book was a book I had listed for 2007 but once I started I couldn't put it down. It was non-fiction. "An Unquiet Mind" by Kay Redfield Jamison is a memoir about dealing with manic depressive illness. I had read "Night Falls Fast," also by her (I think it was last year or the year before). She is a great writer and the subject matter very serious.

So, I am right on track to read "Reading like a Writer" by Francine Prose starting tomorrow.

I haven't read either of those, but I would like to. Perhaps I'll get to them in 2007.

Thanks,

Hi JCR,
Thanks for the link as long as Murakami doesn't complain. :-)
Much appreciated.
I hope you had a great weekend. I'm only just returning to the scene.
Maybe you could put up a post to tell us what your reading plans are like for 2007. Happy New Year, JCR.

I just happened upon your blog. I'm currently reading "Night Falls Fast," and have also purchased "An Unquiet Mind."
