What we’re reading and NaNoWriMo

by Robyn P. Yager

Sorry for the lack of posts, folks. We’ve been tied up.
Here are two small updates from the members of Sons & Lovers Used Books:

1. We are currently reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Edith Wharton’s Age of Innocence. What are you currently reading? (Textbooks don’t count but we totally understand if that’s what you’ve been restricted to. It’s that time of the year). What is on your fall reading list?

2. Both George and I have enrolled ourselves in the National Novel Writing Month contest. Today is the second day, and I don’t believe it gets any easier. From November 1st to 30th participants attempt to write a 50,000 word (about 175 page) first draft of a novel. We’re aiming for 1,600-2,000 words a day. It’s hard. Maybe at the end of the month we’ll make our stories public – but no promises.
