Hiatus?


Never mind a post title - that ought to be the blog title!

I came into this year so sanguine about my reading list, and here it is a few hours away from March, with little to show for such ambitions.  School and work are keeping me on my toes, literally all week long.  As for reading, I've fallen asleep to The Works of Josephus and after a page of Nostromo.  I'm still reading The Brothers Karamazov, but very slowly.  Pretty sad.

Spring quarter might give me more time to read, since I will only have two classes.  It's just that step of making time to read which is daunting.  I'm going to keep trying and hopefully have something to share with you here, before long.

  1. Glad to see you posting again, Marian. We all have slumps and it sounds like you've been extraordinarily busy. All the books you mentioned require quite alot of brain power. Perhaps you need something lighter like a Brontë or Austen to get you going again………?

    In any case, the best of luck with school and I hope you feel more inspired this coming month! :-)

    1. Thanks! Senior year is a new level of busy for me; I'll definitely have to adjust my reading expectations. :)

  2. Looking forward to reading your posts again. I've been in a slump myself, and it's a bit of an effort to get back on track but I do want to get into the swing of things again,

    And I agree with Cleo - maybe something lighter to read might help? :)

    1. The lightest read on my list is re-reading Sherlock Holmes. (Actually, it's long overdue for a re-read, so this could be for the best!) I'm going to try to take this week to work things out. :)

  3. You should stick with Nostromo. It really is a good novel, but it can be difficult and doesn't really pick up until the second half. I suspect the beginning can be difficult because it spends so much time on describing the landscape and geography.

    1. Thanks for the rec! It really sounds like my kind of book - I'm a huge Conrad fan and enjoyed Latin American history class. His themes plus the setting sounds pretty fascinating.
