Packing books for Tahoe
I know I'm only going away for 3 days, but I always need to have choices when it comes to my reading material. Thus, I've packed three books so far. Will I be able to read three books? No. Will I be able to read even one with seven other people and the ensuing chaos of my birthday weekend? Again, probably not. But, I'm a biblio-optimist.
I'm taking The Yiddish Policemen's Union (which I still need to finish) by Michael Chabon, Animal's People by Indra Sinha (shortlisted for the Booker, but it didn't win), and Pablo Neruda's Residence on Earth. It's my birthday and Neruda always speaks to me.
