What I’m currently reading.  Dave Eggers’ “You Shall Know Our Velocity”.
I’ve given up reading Roberto Bolaño’s “The Savage Detectives”.  Here’s the thing: I’m sure it’s a good book and that he’s a great  author, considered one of the best by many, but I just can’t get into  this. I’ve tried for more than a week to get myself absorbed or involved  into the story, but for some reason, I just couldn’t. It’s been  bothering me for a while, really, how I’ve been slacking off. I guess  it’s just not for me. This is the first book I’ve given up on this year  and it makes me sad! I don’t want to force myself though. /fail
