The Quest of An Everyday Soccer Mom to Read the Modern Library's 100 Best Fiction Books of the 20th Century.

Saturday, February 13, 2010


YES! I really am still reading "A Bend in the River", even with so many exciting things going on right now that are distracting me from reading, such as:

1)The Olympics
2)NBA All-Star Weekend
3)The Daytona 500
4)"Holmes on Homes", and
6)the catbox

We did actually get up off the couch at some point today, believe it or not!

I've posted some Twitter updates on random thoughts on ABITR. The story might be a bit slow, but there are some profundities that have jumped out at me from Naipaul's writing. Hang with me...I will be finishing this one up in the next couple of days, in between snowboarding and figure skating. :)


  1. Tell me about it. Having no television helps but then you have no idea what is going on in the world....but I find it's always there waiting for you. I'm on American Tragedy still it's a biggie, but great book.

  2. I have read a lot of positive things about American Tragedy, which is great. Can't wait to read that one. I went television-less for several years and it definitely has its plus-side for getting things done.

    Thanks for commenting :)
