My to-read-when-school-gets-out book pile is getting has gotten out of control and I love it. I have added three more books since I mentioned the growing pile on the 17th. The recently added books are:

  • The Infinity of Lists by Umberto Eco. I have been wanting to read this for ages. Eco curated an exhibit are the Louvre with the subject being lists. I love lists! This book has photos of the art and essays by Eco. He has a new book out in the UK, This is Not the End of the Book, which will hopefully be available in the US soon.
  • Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. This one is due to the Hornby book I just finished and to the various comments of people who had read it and said it is really good.
  • Notes for Joyce by Don Gifford. I plan on reading Ulysses by James Joyce this summer and this hefty book is going to help me do it. It is an entire book of annotations.

It also appears that a book on Emily Dickinson’s garden will be ready for me in a week or so. I am going to try and restrain myself from requesting anything else from the library on a whim. Or maybe not. I am having such fun.

Two weeks from today I will be completely done with school. Sooner if I can motivate myself to finish the final assignment early. The impending holiday weekend forecast is for rain all three days. Perhaps I will be able to get myself to do the assignment then. Or maybe I will just read.
