But with library books you have to read them by a certain time, otherwise you have to get them extended or pay a late fee. I don't have to get to my books anytime soon, since they'll just be sitting in the same spot I left them in.
I read a book in couple of days. so I do read them in time. It's just if I don't have any time limit at all, I never get round to them. It doesn't make sense really.
I just finished No Country For Old Men. I did enjoy it, even though it's not the type of book I'd normally read. Now I can watch the film though, since I like to read books first.
I like the simplistic way McCarthy books are written, but because he doesn't but in speech marks I sometimes get confused as to who's talking. I also think that I missed something at the end, even though I read the last few 'chapters' a few times, did they every catch Chigurh?
Next I think I'll read Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card. I requested for my library to buy it and they did, but I've still not started it.
i see all the talk of McCarthy a few pages back. i guess im a few days late with this question.
i just read the Road and i loved it. are any of his others similar to that? i took a quick glance at some and while i want to read Suttree, I just don't know if it will interest me.
I really enjoyed The Road as well. I just read No Country For Old Men, which I would recommend. It's not the same storyline, but the writing style is similar.
