What have you been reading this week? Can't Post

Well, I had big plans for my four-day weekend but life took over: I ended up driving to Massachusetts with my brother and sister for a family funeral (extended family) and find I can't read when conversation with loved ones is more interesting! While the occasional was a sad one, it brought family together from all parts of the country. Why we wait for funerals to all get together and bemoan the fact that we don't keep in touch on a routine basis is one of the sad mysteries of life. Probably a common one, for large spread-out families.

So, I have only managed to read a few more chapters in Kristin Lavransdattar. But I did finish Falling Man by Don DeLillo. The story was interesting and in a few places very moving, yet I ended up finding it a chore to finish. Ambiguity can be carried too far, in writing and in plot. IMHO.

So, what about you all? Have you had more reading opportunities? What have you been reading this week?
