2 Books Read in October: (85 year-to-date)
1 for Book Club:
- The Kitchen House, Kathleen Grissom (3.5)
1 Just Because:
- Good Behaviour, Molly Keane (4)
Definitely a case of bad timing, and possibly a style clash as well, but I completely failed to meet my obligation of reading Redemption Falls for the discussion I was supposed to have in October. I simply couldn't do it. I'm not the only one, apparently, to compare this work to James Joyce (with whose writing I'm not exactly enamoured).

1 Current Reads:
- Last Night at the Lobster, Stewart O'Nan. Because it is tiny and therefore approachable right now, and because Ti @ Book Chatter loves O'Nan (& she has great taste in books.)
On My Nightstand:
My current plan of attack? Find all the miniscule books I own, put those on my nightstand. Perhaps I'll be able to finish something if it is only 150 pages. I do need to finish Annie Dunne, but it is a quiet, lyrical book that takes a wee bit of attention. Other possibilities? A Lost Lady by Willa Cather, and possibly some of those Indiespensable reads.
