I'm going to take care of two pieces of business at one time in this entry. I was going to say "kill 2 birds with one stone", but it's such a hackneyed expression and I didn't want Bookfool traveling 6000 miles to beat the crap out of me for saying such a thing about birds.
(BTW, Bookfool, I found out what those huge black-and-white-with-blue-wings birds are all over campus. They're magpies, the national bird of Korea. Legend has it that if you hear them chattering, good news is on the way. Five or six magpies were making a racket right under my window yesterday morning, so my forthcoming news must be pretty damn good.)
I digress, big-time. As I was saying, I'm going to bake 2 cakes with one oven. Sycorax Pine is hosting an "Unread Authors" challenge, and I've decided to enter. By listing the books I intend to read for 6 months, beginning in September, you'll also have my confession about books/authors I haven't read yet. How's that for multi-tasking? Usually, I'm not this organized, so when it happens, I kind of scare myself. Anyway, enough of the chitchat; let me drive on into my confession:
1. Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe FINISHED
2. Heart Of Darkness - Joseph Conrad
3. Catch-22 -Joseph Heller
4. Slaughterhouse-Five - Kurt Vonnegut
5. Fifth Business - Robertson Davies
6. Atonement - Ian McEwan FINISHED
Lord Of The Flies - William Golding
Cousin Bette - Honore de Balzac
Don't let this list deceive you. There is so much more to confess to. It's a wonder Cameron University doesn't take back my B.A. in English.
