My reading and blogging is slowing down, hopefully just a temporary matter.
Gravity's Rainbow was published 50 years ago on February 28, 1973. I first read it that week and at least ten additional times. I hope to complete a slow reread in the next four months or so. I also hope to reread his Against the Day and Mason Dixon.
I have in the years posted on many classic status writers born in what is now the Ukraine. Motivated by current events, I read two works by contemporary Ukrainian writers and have two more on my E Reader. I am seeking suggestions in this area.
I want to get back into reading and posting more on short stories
I initiated a new project last month, Ancient Readings, and hope to read some Roman dramas and historical works this month.
I will also continue my participation in The Japanese Reading Challenge
