Welcome, dear readers! Happy first Friday of the month. In the past, we’ve celebrated the all-important first Friday of the month by letting you know the latest episode of Time to Read was available to download. We thought this was a pretty good way to spend your weekend. We were wrong.
What we should have been doing, and what we promise to do from now on, is to tell you what book we’re reading now. Why? So you have Time to Read it of course! And then you can let us know what you think. And when we record the next episode we can let you know what we think of what you think. We think that’s pretty neat.
For the month of November we’ll be reading I’m Thinking of Ending Things. A Novel. By novelist Iain Reid. I don’t know much about it … yet. But I have it on good authority that it’s good. Whose authority you might ask? An author I really admire, Heather O’Neill of Lullabies for Little Criminals fame calls it “Addictive.” Charlie Kaufman of Charlie Kaufman fame is apparently turning it into a television series. I can only hope he brings on Donald Kaufman to help him out.
But what I’d really like to know, dear readers, is what you think of it. Did it keep you up at night? Because it was too scary? Or, maybe you couldn’t put it down? Let us know by email at email@example.com or leave a comment on our website.
