Wow, I am reading two interesting new novels. I have this compulsive side to me and I have been following a list that I picked up at the library called, The Librarians list of the One Hundred Most Influential Novels of the 20th Century. I had read almost half of them, but now over the past few years I have been reading the other fifty. This past week I started Ralph Ellison's, The Invisible Man. If anyone else has read it I would love to hear your thoughts, but the other book I am reading is Margaret Atwood's, The Handmaids Tale. It is REALLY thought provoking and horrifying. In a nutshell, it is about a new society in America's future where women are valued only if their ovaries are viable. They may not read, speak out or have any rights at all. The women with the fabu ovaries are called handmaids. Anyhow, I really like it and recommend it. Also it is not very long, which works for me.
