Actually, I can. I read a lot. I read so much that I know "a lot" is not really proper English, but I works in this situation, so I'm gonna go with it. Currently, I am reading A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. I am also reading Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, but I don't actually own a copy - I am reading it at the bookstore.
I used to read a lot (there are those words again) as a kid, but after high school I didn't make the time. A few months ago I got the urge to pick up a book again, and I haven't stopped reading since.
Here is a list of books I have read since February of this year:
Forever by Pete Hamill
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers
Hard Times by Charles Dickens
Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenedes
The Known World by Edward P. Jones
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
If you have any suggestions for a great read, please let me know.
