Immediate Book Meme February 19, 2014

“There are plenty of memes that want to know all about your book history and your all-time greats and your grand ambitions, but let’s focus on something more revealing: the books you’re actually reading now, or just read, or are about to read. Let’s call it The Immediate Book Meme.”

1. What book are you reading now?

Rose by Martin Cruz Smith


2. What book did you just finish?

I’d revise this question to say “What’s the last book you read cover to cover?” There’s nothing just or recent about it.

The Discomfort Zone by Jonathan Franzen


3. What do you plan to read next?

Everything I see. But I’m a finger into The Sportswriter by Richard Ford, Modern American Memoirs edited by Annie Dillard and Cort Conley, and The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. Also Lord of the World by Robert Hugh Benson


4. What book do you keep meaning to finish?

Don Quixote and The Idiot


5. What book do you keep meaning to start?

The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon

Just kidding…I have no intention of ever…


6. What is your current reading trend?

Read the first three chapters of a book, set it down and forget about it. Pick up magazines instead, or scroll through facebook looking for interesting links.

What about you?
