Trying to get into American Pharaoh - about Richard J. Daley
I'll probably give up on it after a few pages, but it looked interesting at the library.:-D
I tend to do the same thing. Read a really heavy book (usually on social movements, existentialism and/or metaphysics) followed by a brief happy go lucky - no words with more than 3 silly bulls - novellette such as "Shop Girl" or one of those Steinbeck mint green cover deals.
The illustrated collected stories of Sherlock Holmes (!!).
The Small-Mart Revolution: How Local Businesses are Beating the Global Competition by Michael Shuman
Speaking of Clavell, I reread Shogun not too long ago. It's every bit the page turner now that it was 20 years ago. Picked up Noble House immediately afterwards and after only a few pages found myself somehow unable to 'get into' the story and abandoned the effort. Maybe I was too attached to the Anjin-san character at that moment and was secretly hoping to read more Shogun where they left off. Maybe I'll try again sometime in the not too distant future.Maybe it's time to pick up the Lord of the Rings trilogy again or maybe Clavell. Just can't stay away from those really long novels.
I'd say let's start a book club and discuss.... but I finished reading Asimov when I was 12. No, I'm not kidding.
