First Book of 2004
I'm off to a slow start for reading in 2004. I just finished my first book of the year - Bigfoot Dreams by Francine Prose (which I never even got around to posting on the sidebar). This is an older book, originally published in 1986, and is from my "What to Read" personal required reading list. It was an "okay" book, for lack of a better work, not quite what I expected, and a bit dated - lots of references to aging hippies and NYC in the '80s. But it got me out of my comfort zone to read something from a different genre, which is what my reading list is supposed to do.
