I've just updated my book blog with my latest literary experiences. I always feel that I'm not keeping that blog up to date as often as I should, but looking back I've posted about 11 books I've read since September.
11 books in four months - not bad going really. If I keep up this pace throughout 2007, I'll have got through 36 books by this time next year. And if I keep going for the rest of my life - with a life expectancy of say, 80 years - I may have read another 1944 books before I die. That is one hell of a lot of books. Where am I going to put them all? (local library is rubbish).
As well as picking up whatever comes my way this year, I think my literary aim is going to get to grips with the great 20th century American writers - and possible start by reading a decent book about the whole development of the American novel. I love Steinbeck and have been getting into my late 20th century authors (work book club is reading Bonfire of the Vanities at the moment - at my suggestion)... so I think I'm going to try and fill in the some of the gaps.
