So. Figuring out how to renew my domain name has been eating up too much of my free time, that I decided to just go ahead and disable it for the time being. Ugh. I ain't got no time for that right now, especially when I have a seductively huge stack of books calling out to be read.
For 2015, B and I are attempting to read 2 works by contemporary authors each month (we alternate choosing a writer each month) in the hopes of getting more acquainted with what's "in" these days as well as learning more about each other since we have such disparate tastes in books to begin with. B picked Cormac McCarthy for January, and I can't think of a more perfect author to start the year and our project with. Over the weekend, I finished All the Pretty Horses and No Country for Old Men, and I cannot wait to sink my teeth into Outer Dark, which will be the third (!) book of his we'll be reading this month. McCarthy's prose is terse but rich and hauntingly beautiful. It grabbed me as soon as I started reading, and I can't stop thinking about it.
It's finally so cold that I have to resort to taking photos indoors. Forgive the yellow lighting and my sleepy mug-- the cold makes it harder for me to perk up in the mornings. So I try to liven things up by wearing happy prints and colors!
