Well, I have to read 2 books this month, so I'm a little worried, but I also have the last 10 days of the month off, so I'm going to keep positive and tell myself that I can do this!
The first book I'm tackling is Cutting for Stone, a novel that has a lot of fans out there. Every single solitary person I know that has read it, and I'm not exaggerating that, has sung its praises. I'm a few chapters in and I think I will like it. It's seems like a sweeping generational story of two brothers, both doctors. One brother is the narrator, and it starts with him describing the lives of his mother, a nun! and nurse at a hospital in Africa. The father (although there seems like the potential for that to be a contested title) is a surgeon and friend, Dr Stone.
Nuns, doctors, twins, globe hopping, multiple cultures, Abbis Ababa? I'm in!
I'm not sure what I'll do after that one. I have one novel left, The Book of Night Women and two books of non-fiction, The Best and the Brightest and Embracing Defeat. I'm *hoping* to tackle The Best and The Brightest, since it's a book I've wanted to read for years. We'll see how it goes.
How are things looking for you? Not like this has been a busy year or anything. Heh.
