In January, I decided that my goal for the year of 2011 was to read TWO books. I never read anymore. I get distracted or I'm tired or so busy that devoting time to a book seems like a poor use of time. I began the year reading The Idiot, but got so busy that I had to put it down for so long that when I was able to take it up again, I couldn't remember what was happening.
But summertime means more time and I have now finished Crime and Punishment. It was fantastic. Go read it! It is insanely suspenseful! I couldn't put it down.
Now I am trying to decide if I want to try The Idiot again, which I had been enjoying, or start The Possessed.
