Without going into detail, I'm currently experiencing massive changes in my life and it's been tough. I need a goal, so I thought I'd port my list of books to be read over from my tumblr ([tumblr.com profile] glitteratiglue ). When I counted them up I discovered 29, which is kind of embarrassing. I need to stop just reading articles from the Guardian and fic, so my new rule is I'm not allowed to buy any new books until I've read the ones I already have.

Have read one on the list so far: Love In The Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I think I liked One Hundred Years of Solitude more; his writing is beautiful and the atmosphere he creates is extraordinary, but something about the book just didn't do it for me. It took me a while to get through it.
