Finishing...and starting again
I finished The Post-Birthday World the other night, and had that bereft feeling you get when you finish a good book. The characters were people I had gotten to know and now they're gone and I miss them. I really liked this book, and I will write about it, but I have to wait a little while for it to sink in. Also, my book group discussion of the book was postponed until next week, so I'm debating about waiting to post anything about it.
I immediately started Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell, and am liking it, though it is a challenging read. I also mooched and received Lucky Girls: Stories, a collection of short stories by Nell Freudenberger from BookMooch, so there's another book for the pile.
This pile just keeps getting bigger and bigger...
