For those of you keeping score at home, I wanted to let you know that at 10:59pm tonight I sent the final three chapters of my latest book to my publisher. I am relieved. I am exhausted. I am happy. I don't know what to do with myself.
My plan is to take a couple of weeks off, watch as many movies as I can and clear my head before I try to figure out what's next for me.
One of the things I want to do is read some. Because of the nature of this recent project, I've been reading commentaries mostly. In fact, I think I read more commentaries in the past four months than I did in all of graduate school!
So, here's where I could use your help. What are the books I need to get and read now? I'd like a mix of fiction and non-fiction. To start, Jill bought me Ferrol Sam's newest novel, Down Town. I cracked it open yesterday and read about 100 pages before I knew what had happened. Oddly enough, that's the only book I received for Christmas this year.
What do you recommend?
