I am in the middle of reading a book called “Gilead”, by Marilynne Robinson, and it is SO good! Beautiful beautiful prose… it is a farewell letter from an aging father to his younger-than-usual son, full of memories and lessons he wants to share with his son before he dies, but will be unable to since the boy is too young to understand much of what the father wants to convey.
Anyway, I am not finished yet, but I find that every time I pick this book up I become engrossed and inevitably end up spending more time reading than I plan to. Mostly this happens at night, eating away at the precious hours of sleep I already forfeit to lab work. Hehe. 🙂
Anyway, I recommend it so far. 🙂
