I have strictly rationed off my reading of Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch. I raced through about the first 70% of it, according to my Kindle. And now I’ve slowed it down and am reading 1 measly % each day. I just can’t stand for it to end.
In the meantime, I’ve read Bad Behavior by Mary Gaitskill, which is a disturbing short story collection about weird people doing weird things to each other. Also, Delicate, Edible Birds by Lauren Groff, another short story collection. Beautiful writing!
I’m reading an e-galley of The Martian by Andy Weird, which, even though I haven’t seen Gravity, reminds me of what the book version would probably be. It’s really intense and sooooooo good.
My favorite thing I’ve found online in a while is this post about Jonathan Franzen by Mallory Ortberg.
And that’s it for now. What are you all reading?
