Informal survey: Do you say 'paJAHMas' like 'java' or 'paJAMas like raspberry jam? (Ohhhh- now I want coffee and scones.)
You say pajamas and I say pajahmas
You say Ms. Clinton and I say OBAMA!
My reading today is a mixed bag. Since Jhumpa Lahiri's new book, Unaccustomed Earth, is on order, I decided it was time to read the rest of Interpreter of Maladies (why did I wait so long?). I'm also reading the new issue of The Sun magazine, more of Anne Fadiman's At Large and At Small, and hope to get another big chunk of War and Peace read (less than 350 pages to go - the average size of a novel) . Oh - and I'm 3/4 of the way through Fifth Business by Robertson Davies, a book that sneaked into my reading pile last week that I'm thoroughly enjoying.
I used to be quite content reading one book at a time, but lately I often have 3 or 4 going. My former reading self couldn't imagine reading 2 or 3 novels simultaneously - maybe a nonfiction or two along with a novel. I'm not sure what shifted, other than my To Be Read pile (aka Mount TBR) has become unmanageable and I feel the need to tackle it in chunks. Or maybe I'm just enjoying the heck out of reading these days and I don't need to analyze it.
Since winter-like weather has returned I like to keep this memento of last week's spectacular spring days close by:
My suggestion: grab your favorite books, a cup of tea or coffee, put your PJs back on and settle in for the day. And enjoy!
