A start of a new week finds me starting new books, or revising my goals so I can finish up lingering books. I had previously been a “one book until I am through” reader, but find I am enjoying having a few books in play (and it keeps my wide collection of book marks busy).
This Monday I am still working on two books, the ever lingering Crime and Punishment, and the lingering is no fault of Dostoevsky because I am really enjoying the book and don’t find it sluggish – I have just found myself distracted with other books. I have about 200 pages to go on The Host by Stephanie Meyer, which I picked up last week as a diversion from just finishing a wonderful, but dense, cultural history of Russia Natasha’s Dance by Orlando Figes. Also for my Russian kick, I just picked up The Madonnas of Leningrad by Debra Dean which I will start this week as well.
My goal: finish up both The Host and The Madonnas of Leningrad before next week, and no more excuses on Crime and Punishment – I need to make a better dent this week, and finish that up by next week.
