Harvest, by Jim Crace. I'm about halfway done, and I like it. I also just read The Ghost Writer, by Philip Roth, which I also liked a lot. And before that, Angler, about Dick Cheney, by Barton Gellman, which I liked, too. Next Up: The Luminaries (!) and This Town, by Mark Liebovitch.


I am envious of all the cool books you get to edit!

Just finished This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz and have started San Miguel by T.C. Boyle. I also have Dear Life by Alice Munro, though I have probably read most of those stories in The New Yorker.


I think you should make some top ten lists at the end if the year: top ten novels you read, books you proofread, etc. It sounds like you've had your hands on so many great books this year!


Truly, you have an awesome job. I am sure when you are in the midst of deadlines, and working on sentences that frustrate you, it may not seem like it. I think it is, though. :)


You know what, I DO appreciate how awesome my job is. I really, really LOVE what I do. Yes, the business end of it sucks sometimes, but for the most part when I'm tidying up sentences with a cat on my lap, we're both purring. :)
