Reading Update

I have stopped reading Clarissa for the moment. It is a very heavy-going book and since I am at the moment caught between proposing my dissertation and applying for internships, I find myself unable to read more than a page or two of Clarissa. I find myself gravitating towards lighter reading - so I have been working on finishing Poirot Investigates. I think I shall postpone Clarissa until next year and focus on finishing up my half-read books in the next few months. That's 27 books in all and it would still bring me over my resolution of 24 books for this year. Next year, I think I shall spend reading only one book - Clarissa. That will be quite the feat in itself - being able to finish the book that was the longest novel in English literature for over 200 years (it's not the longest anymore).

I feel so tired with all these deadlines - I wish I could just sit back, relax and read, read, read...

Aarti, yes I did get the message. I was rolling over with laughter. I will probably not be able to visit you until winter break! Then you can tell me all your stories from Italy. Right now, I am working nonstop on my stupid dissertation. :-) I do miss you both. I wish I could take a break and come and see you...
