Even so, my job easily lends itself to picking up a book (I work at a park and I can very easily banish myself to the booth to sell permits, which gives lots of time for reading). I have some posts planned for the time when I am gone, but once I get home (around 4:30 or so), I will be reading straight through midnight.
I am also planning on waking up early Saturday morning to get in a few hours of reading before work. I even planned out my Friday night after work to make sure I could get enough sleep to do so!
I am hoping to be super productive and get a lot of reading done that has been sitting around. If you haven't noticed by the pictures at left, I am in the middle of a number of different books, and it is driving me batty, since I don't usually do that. I want to get it back down to two (The Brothers Karamazov and something else) to keep myself sane.
Here is what I am planning on reading, as a head's up:
- Finish Slaughterhouse-Five. I started it last night, and might very well finish it tonight, but if not, it will be finished then.
- Finish The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It is a collection of short stories, so I should fly through them.
- Read The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Again, short stories, which lend themselves easily to reading.
- Start Heart of Darkness. Finishing this, as well as the Vonnegut title, will finish up the LOST challenge.
- Perhaps start The Count of Monte Cristo in anticipation of the Classics Circuit stop at my blog on the 23rd!
- Continue Part 2 of The Brothers Karamazov for next Thursday's post
- I think I am also going to read a few poems, in honor of poetry month, but I'm not positive yet...
- The Sign of the Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
- Macbeth by William Shakespeare
- A handful of poetry posts
