My bookish goal today is to clean up my sidebar (my 2009 reading list is still there) and my Ever-Growing TBR List. It's a bibliovore's dilemma: do I leave all the crossed-out books on the list so that I can have the satisfaction of knowing I crossed things out, or so I delete them? I've left them up for 2 years, so this year I'm deleting. I know, I know—if only all our troubles were this ridiculously insignificant.
On the reading side, I posted a review of Ernest Gaines's novel The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman this week, and John Irving's Late Night at Twisted River will be coming soon. I am halfway through Chris Bohjalian's The Buffalo Soldier and loving it. This week I also need to read Oedipus Rex in preparation for the World Lit class I teach. I don't think I've read it in about 25 years!
In other bookish news, I have $13 in used book credit at a local bookstore and $7 left on a gift card to another bookstore. If only I were motivated to actually go out and shop!
