Death of a Reading List

It isn't because I don't want to complete it; nor is it because I find it to be a chore (as many people who dislike reading lists claim).  There are reasons I cannot explain here, but I have been to the doctor and the words "acute" and "chronic" were used several times.  Due to this, I had to make a decision: whether to continue both my reading list and my research work, or, as the doctor recommended, choose to do only one.  I have decided to work on my research project because I strongly believe it will prove more edifying in the long run.

I will continue posting here, both about the research and also about the one book I have selected to read for pleasure: "The Stories of John Cheever."  I will be doing this with a sharp eye to the craft and technique of one of the greatest (but under-rated) writers of the 20th Century.  There will be some sporadic work on the typing of my numerous Moleskine notebooks (far too personal to publish here).
