I mentioned the fade theory book club back in June, but I didn’t give a date for our discussion. How does the third week of August work to discuss Living To Tell The Tale by Gabriel Garcia Marquez? I think I’m still on chapter two, thanks to the appropriately titled Infinite Jest. I’m on page 350 or thereabouts of that one, and I’ve gotta say I’m glad I’m finally reading it and that I pushed myself to keep reading. I’m at a place now where I know I will finish it, even if it ends up taking longer than the Infinite Summer schedule. But that’s okay, because it’s not really about reading x number of pages by a certain date but simply about reading it. And that’s what I’m doing. Happily. But that’s for another post.
At the moment I’m nursing a hangover-like headache without having had anything to drink, thanks to being up half the night with a sick but still very playful boy. We’re spending a few days on two of the Estonian islands (Saaremaa and Muhu), and I’m hoping to get some solid reading done. Go away, headache!
