I’m in the middle of two fascinating books right now. Anna Karenina and The Nanny Diaries. The first, I read through literatureonline when I have free time. The second, I can only read on the metro, lunch break, and at home (of course). Studying English meant that I got to read a lot of cool books, but there was always pressure and homework. Now, I’m enjoying the excruciating ecstasy of waiting for my plot to unfold.
I want to know–do Kitty and Levin reconcile? What will happen between Anna and Vronsky? And will Nanny ever get her Harvard Hottie? It’s delicious. I think maybe the more so because I have to get reading done in nibbles here and there. But I read without pressure, without worrying about analyzing style, without writing papers, without knowing I’ll need to discuss it in class. If I get 5 pages or 50 read, the only thing driving me is my desire.
And these are good books, each in its genre.
So I’m a happy Mrs. Micah. But I’m really wondering—will Mrs. X doing anything about Ms. Chicago? Don’t spoil it for me. 😉
