I read widely from many genres. Perhaps this blog will feature fewer ratings and reviews, but I certainly intend to write about my reading life - it's the subject I most find myself wanting to talk about.
The year is one month gone today, and I had not yet sat down to read a book straight through. So I got to it. I picked Roland Barthes' "The Pleasure of the Text." It's a good thing that a) the book is short and b) I've read a fair amount of Barthes (in translation) already. I had a really difficult time quieting my mind this morning and focusing. So it took longer than I anticipated. But that's what kind of year it's been, I guess. -cg
