It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished The Passage last week, and finished The Twelve today, so I guess that means I'm on to City of Mirrors next. Starting tomorrow! I need a day or so to process and regroup after two pretty tough weeks of reading. Everything I've heard about City suggests that it too will pack an emotional wallop, so a break is definitely called for.
I'm still reading Kevin Birmingham's The Most Dangerous Book, which is fascinating and surprising and page-turning. I'm learning a lot about censorship in the early 20th century and how literature evolved and changed in this time.

Finally I still have Independent People in my subway bag, but I've been very focused on the Passage trilogy and haven't read a lot of it this week. That will change though because I don't want to take my signed copy of City of Mirrors out of the house, so I will only read that at home and keep Laxness for the subway.

But! I'm moving soon, and won't be spending as much time on the subway. (No, not back to Boston- just to New Jersey). Will that mean less time for reading too? We'll see!

Have a happy Fourth of July if you're celebrating.

Purity by Jonathan Franzen right now but that new Justin Cronin book is on my radar. :)

I've heard wonderful things about this series, but I'm such a fraidy cat.

Here's my Wordless Wednesday!
