Tuesday Post of Accountability.

I am not accountable.

I am reading.

Four books down so far in JenRidReadMo: Anatomy of Motive by John Douglas; The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta; The Barracks Thief by Tobias Wolff; and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carre.

Yes, I'm behind.


  1. Go, Jenny, go.

    I've read a lot of really good books this year--and some not so good ones. I don't think that was entirely due to having a stated goal. I did read a couple little books that I had forgotten about just to get the count up. And they were both amazing. But still.

    Next year I'm going back to my old haphazard ways. I'm always going to read a lot anyway. And I like being able to sink into a really beautifully written piece without worrying about how long I'm taking. I want to be able to reread those gorgeous passages as many times as I want.

    You, however, are a mad woman who thrives on this stuff. So go for it!

  2. Wow, you never slack off, do you??? You're making me look bad, you know. I don't like it...

  3. Good for you! I've only heard of the fourth book. Is it good? Should I add it to the pile? My parents have a copy...

  4. Deniz - it was pretty good, but if you read it, go straight through or you might lose who is who - they're all spies and have three cover stories each.

    Fleur - you'd best get crackin' chick. I've got your book on my reading list for next year....

    Deb - I'm feeling like a madwoman. Throw me in an attic.

  5. ur mention of Tinker, Tailor makes me want to reread it. george smiley is interesting!
