I used to think I was busy. Before I started school, I had a vivacious three-year-old at home and a gregarious five-year-old who was released from school by two in the afternoon. Add in “housekeeping,” grocery-buying, bill-paying, spouse-engaging, and there was little time left over to read. But read I did, every chance I got. That, however, was before I added grad school into the mix. Now, much of my free-ish time is taken up by blogging, tweeting, researching, reading textbooks and watching tutorials… and I really, really miss reading for pleasure. Just this morning I saw a tweet from Nancy Pearl, librarian extraordinaire, gushing about Irina Reyn’s book from 2008, What Happened to Anna K.— a reimagining of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina as a modern woman living in Queens. Picture me, mid-August, when classes are over for a few weeks: prone, book in hand, iced-tea nearby. Sigh.
