    and putting off finishing a paper.

    This year I have done a lot of re-reads.  I had surgery last winter and came out with some neurological static.  Rereading familiar books was a way to get grounded more quickly.

    But I've now easily packed away my 150 books for the year.

    So far my favorites include several of Hilary Mantel's, including "Bring up the bodies" and her autobiography.

    Can't say I liked "Behind the beautiful forevers" but it was fascinating, well written and very depressing.  

    Thanks all for the lists of favorietes-more TBR!

      I hope you are feeling better!

      I think re-reading favorite books is a good thing to do.  I expect to do more of that, too.

      I am glad to see you!
