Currently Reading: Atwood’s “The Year of the Flood”
One of the best perks of working at the bookstore is that I get to borrow books. Like a library, I can simply check out a book for two weeks and return it when I’m done. I get to read a lot of the newest releases without having to pay hardcover prices. Love it!
While working on Sundays, I usually peruse the “Major New” table and decide which books I’d like to check out for the week. This Sunday I grabbed Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood and so far, so good. I do really like Atwood – The Handmaid’s Tale is one of my all-time favorites.
What I like best about this book – and maybe most of Atwood’s works – is that I’m not really sure what exactly is going on. Sounds odd, but Atwood writes in a way that is not confusing, but just really interesting and intriguing, and I can’t wait to put all the pieces together.
