One of the things I look forward to most about the holidays is the chance to do some reading. Of course, socializing with friends and family is my top priority. But at night (when I don’t have to worry about waking up early) or in the airport (where, as in the subway, engrossing material is key) or even during random lulls in the middle of the day, it’s so nice to sneak off with a book, or a stack of old New Yorkers!
I’m in between books right now, and for the past few weeks have been sticking to periodicals. But I’m ready to sink my teeth into something long again. The last book I read for pleasure was The Sportswriter, and for work was the memoir of British computer pioneer Maurice Wilkes. Though I usually get books for Christmas, this year, like many people, I got a Kindle instead. So my slate is blank.
What are you reading these days? Got any recommendations?
