During my 30 minute commute between jersey city and soho (prince & broadway to be exact), I've decided to read everyday rather than listen to my ipod. Plus the woman I sublet from has hundreds of books stashed in our apartment...I figured I might as well take advantage of the situation and seize the day. I began by reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. What a writer. I was captivated from the beginning. He has a way of twisting your heart and your head simultaneously in ways they aren't normally twisted, which sounds unusual but true. I don't know how else to put it. The book is extremely powerful and moving in a very creative way. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I was dissapointed to finish it and wished it had been longer.
The next book I read was The Picture of Dorian Gray. I had never read it, and considering it is a classic, I decided it was about time. Again, a very enjoyable read....quite sad, but still enjoyable. It really makes you contemplate what you value in life and the importance of it.
Yay for summer of subway reading!
