I just counted about nine books which I must read for book tours for the rest of the year. After that, I plan to quit book tours for a while and read books from my own TBR pile. I notice I've been getting grouchy in my reviews lately, so it must be time to move on.
More nonfiction book are on my reading list, too.
By the way, who are you rooting for to win the Nobel Prize for Literature this year? My bet is on Murakami, whose novel 1Q84 with its magical realism and social commentary blew me away, even though it was almost 1,000 pages long. (Click on the link to see my thoughts on that book).
This from the Guardian: "Other favoured contenders include US author Joyce Carol Oates, Hungarian writer Peter Nádas, South Korean poet Ko Un and Alice Munro, the short story writer from Canada."
I've heard Philip Roth's name bandied about too.
Who's your choice?
