Finished: Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. Finally! There needs to be a really, really good case for being 600 pages, and this book doesn’t have one. Also, I just found it was nominated for the Bad Sex in Fiction Award – and now I know why. Yeek. What is read cannot be unread.
There’s plenty of reviewers who wax absolutely lyrical about this book, and it does have its merits. But I did not lament finishing it.
Reading: Eat Pray Love, Elizabeth Gilbert. I was put off by the movie – which I haven’t seen, the shorts were enough – but I’m willing to give the book a go.
These are for Suzy.
