My first task this month is to finish reading ‘A Fine Balance’ by Rohinton Mistry. I am really enjoying reading it, but at over 600 pages of tiny text, it may take me a while.
I’d also like to read ‘Purple Hibiscus’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, as I’ve heard so many good things about her books.
I’m then going to read ‘Flying to Nowhere’ by John Fuller. This was nominated for the Booker prize in 1983, so will put me another step closer to reading all the Booker nominees and winners. It is also a very short book, which is the main reason it has crept to the top of my reading pile this month!
My Amazon sellers book club suggestion for this month is ‘Beloved’ by Toni Morrison. I’m supposed to finish reading this by the end of October, but I have just ‘mooched’ it via www.bookmooch.com from someone in America, so it may be a while before it arrives!
In the meantime I’ll keep copying some reviews of my favourite 2008 reads onto this blog. Thanks for reading!
