Bout of Books 11 Day 3


Today, I continued with The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Micheal Chabon, but then decided I really needed a break from it.  So, I started The Stranger’s Woes by Max Frei, and I’m only stopping because I’m yawning so much I can’t read more than a sentence or two at a time.  I’m not yawning out of boredom; I’m just ridiculously tired for some reason.  I was almost 100% certain I would enjoy The Stranger’s Woes as much as the first book in the series, and I was right.  I’m happy to find out that there are 2 more in the series left for me to read.

Though I read more today than the previous days, I would’ve liked to have read more than that.  I may not have had to work, but I still had things I needed to get done, including an absolutely necessary stop at the store to get pastries because the characters in The Stranger’s Woes are frequently eating them along with a drink called kamra, which seems to be their world’s version of coffee or tea.  I tried to fight the urge to join them in their gluttony, but I was happily defeated.  Luckily for me, I stopped after just one pastry.  I have 3 more left, and that should get me through the rest of the book, which I should be finishing by Friday at the latest.

  1. Woo! Happy reading. I’ve always wondered about The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay — seeing you mention it here reminded me I should take a look at it. Don’t be too hard on yourself for not reading more — just have fun whenever you do read! We still have four more days ahead of us! 🙂

  2. Books with food descriptions are THE WORST THING for making me compulsively stop somewhere to buy whatever the characters are eating. I can’t help myself! And I agree that readathons seem to make me strangely tired at the worst possible times. It’s like, because I know I want to be reading and making an effort, my body’s just like “Lol nope, HERE HAVE SOME YAWNING”. Aaaanyway, I’ll be trying to finish The Forest of Hands and Teeth and Ghost World today, in the hopes of moving onto some Shirley Jackson and Christopher Isherwood before the week’s over. Good luck for your day 4! 🙂
