  1. Freedom and Room are two books that I will be reading in 2011.

  2. I am in the middle of listening to Freedom right now for book club. I haven’t arrived at a conclusion yet, except that so far I don’t like any of the people. Still it is compelling to listen. Like stopping to look at an accident…

    • Even in The Corrections, all the characters were more than flawed and far from likable. I think that’s a signature of his novels. Anxiously waiting to hear your verdict.
