Who or What to blame this time? I have to have something to turn to for my slack-ass reading.
Shit look at how long it took me to read this volume.
6 months 13 days
I have to figure that it's a record.
That works out to one story read and written about every 9.8 days.
11 stories by men – 9 by women authors.
ONLY 3 from The New Yorker! – The Atlantic is represented the same number of times.
In terms of motivation, I will say that I was not at all motivated to read the stories in this collection.
I can easily lean on Helprin and say that his distaste for the minimalist turned me off...I can blame my work schedule...
There is no one to blame though - just me.
There really is only one thing to do. Keep reading. 1989 is up.
