I’m reading Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy this weekend. I’ve started it a few times and have yet to make it more than a quarter of the way through. It’s bleak, violent, and dark– BUT I really want to dislodge it from my TBR. I found some posts on the Internet calling the Judge the best character in literature which have peaked my interest again. So, again, I’m going to try reading it. Wish me luck!
Tonight, though, I need to finish the last few chapters of J.G. Ballard’s Super-Cannes. Maybe this will prove a good jumping off point for a McCarthy book: from one absurdity to another.
Most important: If I bury my nose in a book all weekend, then I’ll be too busy to watch election coverage. 😛
