And last night I also started Flannery O'Connor's Everything That Rises Must Converge. I read the title story. I think I'll read a story every day or three and read from the Stephenson the rest of the time, and that will give me plenty of time to finish the O'Connor in time for book club on April 2. If I finish her stories early enough, I may proceed to The Violent Bear It Away or Wise Blood, or maybe change authors and go with Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, although reading two techno-centered sci-fi thrillers at the same time might not be a good idea. If I'm going to read a few things at once, contrast is a good thing.
Read any good books lately? Any recommendations?
