Where to be happiest...

After finishing "Lolita," I find myself questioning which book to read before the 25th. The reason for the indecision is that I have 2 books I want to read between the 25th and the 3rd of January. Why the schedule? Because I suspect that once school starts up again I will have little time to do anything else. At any rate, the two books are "Reading Like a Writer" and "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman" both by authors I really like. I am also in the plans of listing the books for 2007. Although the list usually changes during the course of the year, most of the titles stick and I do enjoy posting the progress on my website. But for now, the trick is deciding on a book that will take me from December 19th through the 25th. Candidates are 1) a volume from a series introducing philosophers, and 2) a book of essays by William Gass. Of course I will continue to read the fascinating letters of James Wright. Which reminds me... thanks to a healthy gift by a literary benefactor I will be able to acquire my first books of poems by James Wright this Christmas. Again, like the title of this post: my only problem right now is where to be happiest! Happy Christmas and Merry New Year!
