Am rather enjoying this weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. It keeps me organized as to my reading progress and I love checking out what everyone else is reading. Great resource for picking new books too!
To play along, just answer the following three questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading? Just began The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje last night. On Page 60 and the story is pretty interesting. The writing style straightforward. This is my first Ondaatje and I purposely chose a work other than his Booker prize winner The English Patient.
What did you recently finish reading? Just finished The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and re-read The Hobbit. The former has been the best book of 2013 so far, although of course it’s very early days yet, whereas The Hobbit is a firm favorite and comfort read that never fails to disappoint 🙂
What do you think you’ll read next? Not too sure…but it’s a toss up between The Great Gatsby or The Famished Road by Ben Okri. I also plan to read Rainbow at Noon by Sahitya Akademi award winner Dhiruben Patel, an 80-yr old Indian author, about a ‘sannyasi’, (loosely translated as a monk), who returns to the worldly life and what happens next. Seems like an interesting subject! It’s written originally in Gujarati, and so fits neatly into my resolve of reading more work by Indian authors writing in local languages. Ans at less than 200 pages, should be quick read 🙂
