One of my intentions for 2012 is to read more! My sister and brother-in-law bought me a nook for all my travels and filled it with great reads. I started the year off appealing to my crime mystery solver alter-identity. Did you know that 48hours mystery is one of my favorite TV shows and I secretly dream of another career as a detective/crime solver? Also I LOVE Jill Scott (another Jilly from Philly) and know that she is in the HBO making of this book, The No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall. It was a fast sweet read that started a seed to travel to Africa.
I am just finishing Jennifer Egan’s novel/short story collective, A Visit From the Goon Squad. It is taking me back to my NYU life!!!
Next up (and I am super excited!!!!) Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84. This 928 page novel should get my through my last 2 weeks in the ‘Burgh including the long journey home.
