The Big Read

The Aspen Writers Foundation is participating in the NEA's The Big Read.

The chosen book is Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya which according to LibraryThing, I just happen to have on my shelf.

Yes, I had to search my own LibraryThing catalog to see if we own the book. (I've had to do that with music, too. I came home from a movie thinking that I wanted to buy a song I had heard only to discover that I already owned it.)

Since I'm such a joiner, I'll be reading as soon as I finish Charlie Wilson's War.

If I can find it on my shelf.

With 1,220 books in the house, that can be a challenge.

Such a challenge, that, at times, I'm tempted to give up and just buy another copy.

For example, I've been looking for Angela's Ashes for over a year . . .

Such an embarrasment of riches
