A Report. Kind Of.

Way back in December (it feels like forever ago) I blogged about reading two books at once. I promised to report on how it went.

Well, here it is. Kind of.

I was reading Embassytown, a novel by the wonderful China Meivelle, and 1922, a novella by the legendary Stephen King. I found that while I read 1922, and took a break from Embassytown. 1922, being a measly 120 or so pages, didn’t take very long to read, so the break from ‘Town wasn’t very long at all, hardly noticible. Still, I didn’t actually flip between the two.

1922 was terrifying, by the way. Emabssytown was incredibly dense, but very thought-provoking and satisfying .

So, the experiment continues! The Art Of Fielding, by Chad Harbach, and Sleepless, by Charlie Huston. So far the biggest issue is deciding which one to put in my bag – The Art Of Fielding is too big for me to fit both…

    Loved Embassytown so much! Currently reading The Naked and the Dead (Mailer), Dhalgren (Delaney), and The World as I Found it (Duffy). I find reading multiple novels helps me pace my reading and not fly through them, remembering nothing. I don’t like feeling that reading is a race. Also, some of them are heavy sledding.

  3. You get observed quite interesting points! ps decent website.
