The annual New York Times 100 Notable Books list is up and despite considering myself quite the reader, I have only read three of them (ok, and one of them was Harry Potter). I can highly recommend On Chesil Beach. However, I could barely make it through the first few pages of The Yiddish Policemen’s Union before I decided I was bored to tears and irritated with the narrator already.
So, only 97 more books to read before next year’s list. I love a challenge.
