I didn't read much in 2017. It made me dumber.

Started Telegraph Avenue yesterday. It's laughable to think back to 2004 when this story took place and how a neighborhood's landscape could be threatened by a DVD/book/CD megastore of all things. Nuts how quickly modern novels date themselves. Looking forward to finishing this one.

I think I'll start this again. I put it down shortly after this 2018 post.

I don't remember who it was, but I am pretty sure someone on RM suggested this. It is wild and weird and a lot of fun; I'm about 20% in and can't wait to keep going:

So Lee Child is handing over the reigns of Jack Reacher to his brother huh? I hope that the tone of the novels don't change too much.

On a side note.... Why was autocorrect trying so hard to try and change novel to movie when I typed that?

I think so, but will probably read something else in between.

been reading Silo with the kid. well, we were for awhile...anyway, I started it back up again. is there anything to be gleaned from the fact that the Democrats in the story are the ones who created the apocalypse? It's been awhile since the publication so I don't know if there are a lot of articles but I wonder about that from time to time. they only mention party affiliation a handful of times but it's in there. he could have left party out and just made it a general 'government is bad' message but it was a choice.

I adore Amber Sparks. She read from her new collection last night at a bar near my place. The book didn't officially go on sale until today but they were selling copies last night at the reading. I scooped up a copy and started reading this morning on the commute. Really digging it so far.

The Human Stain.

I saw it on someone's list (edit: Stardog Champion) in the 50 book/50 movie challenge thread.

I just finished City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert. It's the first book of hers that I've read. I quite enjoyed her style and the book itself.

Nice. I've never read any of her stuff but this book keeps coming up a lot. Glad you dug it.

Quote:
In this existential murder mystery, it is Christmas Eve, and fifty-five-year-old professor Pål Andersen is alone, drinking coffee and cognac in his living room. Lost in thought, he looks out the window and sees a man strangle a woman in the apartment across the street. Failing to report the crime, he becomes paralyzed by his indecision. Professor Andersen’s Night is an unsettling yet highly entertaining novel, written in Dag Solstad’s signature concise, dark, and witty prose. “He’s a kind of surrealistic writer, of very strange novels,” Haruki Murakami wrote. “I think he is serious literature”.

Finished it and was very impressed. I like Roth's style of writing and will check out some of his other books.
