Brief explanation: In order to take a break from my long writing-first focus I am turning to reading. In this case, the binge is 7 days long, and a whole book (fiction or nonfiction) each day.
I’m already almost 200 pages through this classic French novel, The Red and the Black, and enjoying it quite a bit for all the telling and old-fashioned lack of dialogue.
Anyway, this is just a log. Reading 530 pages is a fairly time-intensive process, even with this new half speed-reading I’m trying.
