Read in Love

Thursday, March 21, 2002
So, I've decided that this year is the year of READING. In other words, I'm going to attempt to complete as many books as possible. Already I've been able to read four books from cover to cover, no small feat for me considering that I usually take a year to get half-way through a single book and often drop several books over the course of a year. I don't think I've finished reading any specific book over the past five years.

So here's my list so far:
1. Snowcrash by Neal Stephenson, seminal Cyberpunk novel
2. Peter Pan by James Barrie, seminal children's novel of the twenties
3. Hyperion by Dan Simmons, science fiction
4. Wormwood by David Levien, fictional indictment of Hollywood and absinthe addiction

I have a couple that are partially finished but I won't include until I've finished them. Purple tries to read around a hundred books or so a year, I dont' think I'll be able to keep up at this pace, but already I'm happy with what I've accomplished.
