I haven't been reading much. It's not for lack of material, as there are always a couple of books lounging by my nightstand. But mostly, the books I've brought home have been of the "read-a-couple-chapters-and-then-return" variety.
I started reading A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan and I'm about half way through, and it's okay, but, again, I could walk away... sigh.
Here's my short summary so far:
Vignettes into the lives of aging, disgruntled, unhappy humans, from teens to elderly, with their choices framed largely by their regrets at not being enough of whichever particular thing they were chasing after.
Perhaps I need to return to some classics, or perhaps reread an old favorite. I'll keep you posted.
