can't see no other way

Happy International Women's Day!

An update on that book list:

The Magicians, Lev Grossman
All Soul's Rising, Madison Smartt Bell
Parable of the Talents, Octavia Butler
The Satanic Verses, Salman Rushdie
The Cure at Troy, Seamus Heaney
The Illustrated Man, Ray Bradbury
Sunshine, Robin McKinley
Stone's Fall
, Iain Pears
The Use of Weapons, Iain Banks
The Broken Kingdoms, NK Jemisin
Brown Girl in the Ring, Nalo Hopkinson
The End of the Affair, Graham Green
White Teeth, Zadie Smith
The Turn of the Screw, Henry James (I know, I know. Bad English major)
The Marriage Plot, Jeffrey Eugenides
The Rain God, Arturo Islas
George Washington Gomez, Americo Paredes
1Q84, Haruki Murakami
Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius, Sylvia Nasar
White Noise, Don DeLillo
The Farming of Bones, Edwidge Danticat 
Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami

Bold = finished
Looking at this list, I feel that it's not very impressive. Five books in two months? Yeah, Sarah. Doing real well there. But, well, White Teeth  is over 450 pages, The Magicians is over 400, Stone's Fall is 600, and Kafka on the Shore is almost 500. So...I've been reading a lot of long books. 
I think my next book will be The End of the Affair. I've actually never read any Graham Greene.
And because it's supposed to be 70 degrees today (!), have some Patty Griffin:
