Book cover image shamelessly knicked from Wikipedia.
I've currently got two books on the go on my kindle, one being a book on anxiety, the other a book in a series of about a billionty (and by 'billionty I mean 14, with the 15th on the way at the end of the month), The Dresden Files. I used to read multiple books at a time, picking up whatever struck me on any given day. Something changed, and I started to focus on just one book at a time, reading in each precious word. Something tells me I'm headed back to the realm of many books, but only time will tell.
The next book I want to add to the pile is The Goldfinch, written by Donna Tartt. I would love to say that the plot line sounds captivating, or that I heard it was written by a Pulitzer Prize winner, but neither of those things would be true. I have two simple reasons for wanting to read this book:
1) I liked the cover. It caught my eye on a website. I love how raw it is, and I'm a sucker for handwriting.
2) I've seen this book pop up in several book clubs of late. If a bunch of book clubs think it is an alright read, then alright, I'll read it!
My two shameful reasons for wanting to read this book. I did discover that the plot line seems rather interesting, too.
Have you read The Goldfinch?
