I hope to review it later this month.
There are certain authors whose work I purposefully prolong. Donna Tartt’s The Secret History for example. A book so beautifully written that I read it very slowly over the course of two months because I wanted to memorize entire passages. Do you do the same?
I don’t think it’s possible to ‘slow read’ all books. A lot depends on the narrative pace and whether or not you’re the “instant gratification” type.
I am far – far – behind my self-imposed “fiction” reading “quota” for this year. I find I am reading a lot more non-fiction for work and the research for my own novel is taking up large chunks of my time.
I do though have an exciting list of “must-reads” for this year including a few self-published novels, some of them in genres I thought I would never read (part of my New Year’s Resolutions) so I am looking forward to reading them but I suspect I will get through most of them during my Summer break.
How are you doing? Are you reading more fiction or less?
