Reading List 2013

So last night, I decided the next book on the list would be a re-read of The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorn.  Mostly because I needed some thick plot and some flowery writing to break me out of Breakfast of Champions.  I haven't read the book since high school, so we'll see how it goes.  I might do the Crucible after that, and stay in the early New England theme.

I have to say, though I've lost about 40 pounds in the last 2 years, one drawback is how cold I am in the winter.  It doesn't seem to matter if I wear socks, long sleeves, layers, I still have this chill.  Maybe this week it's just getting over sick, and hopefully I'll be better (and warmer) soon.  Until then, I'm breaking out the heating pad.

Vonnegut: I can relate. I've tried reading Cat's Cradle a couple of times, with no success, and have always hoped to read Breakfast of C's. I just skimmed over the Wikipedia entry for B of C and, nah, I'm not even going to try. Experimental fiction is just too much work for not enough payoff. I recently read a collection of essays by him which I enjoyed: A Man Without a Country. So maybe that will be it for me and old Kurt.

Hope you enjoy re-reading The Scarlet Letter!
