My Careful-What-You-Wish-For Year
I have to admit that this is a beautiful problem to have, but what's someone who reads at only a slightly-above-average speed to do?
Just today, for instance, I picked up the new Joyce Carol Oates novel, Mudwoman, from the library; a pristine used copy of Philip Roth's Library of America edition of Goodbye, Columbus and Five Short Stories from a used book bookstore; and received two promising ARCs from Soho Press. But, thankfully, a solution is on the way - I retire in 261 more days, so I'll just try to stay even until then. Loving it.
