I feel like I haven’t had much control over my reading selections lately. Because of school, Rory’s book club, and the law school book club, I haven’t been able to finish Middlesex. I’m not really complaining because I choose to take part in these discussions (even school – I chose a class with heavy reading). But I am going to be happy when I get to actually choose a book on my own. For instance, I was excited to be able to read over spring break, but when I was packing books I had to bring Persuasion for the book club, Sense and Sensibility for class/book club, and The Quiet American by Graham Greene for the law school book club. I was excited about reading all of those books – I just feel like I have a lack of choice lately.
