I couldn't sleep again last night so I made lots of progress with The Poisonwood Bible and should finish it tonight. It's excellent! The language is poetic yet accessible with some unusual and clever use of words, and it has humour, history, politics, relationships, characters who develop and tragedy too. Thank you to Catriona who lent this book to me. Here is a link to the book on the author's website.
Is it possible to read a book a day, every day? I've finished my year-long project now and I would say that for me, no, it isn't possible to read a whole book EVERY single day. Real life does get in the way, or the book is just too long to complete in the evening after work. However, it looks like it is possible to read an AVERAGE of one book a day for a year, because you can catch up on your reading on weekends and holidays. So in those terms, I kept on track - and I also kept my reading choices eclectic!
