The Woes of an Ambitious Reader

I can't seem to pick what to read next! I just finished Breakfast at Tiffany's and Three Other Stories, so I want to keep up the momentum and start something new right away...but I can't seem to decide on anything. I thought I had it narrowed down to two books: The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald and Dead Souls by Nicolai Gogol but I've gone back and forth between the two, reading the first few pages - and can't seem to decide. Plus, all the books on my shelf look so appealing: Swann's Way, Middlesex, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Animal Farm, The Awakening, Crime and Punishment, The Inferno, Siddhartha, Catch-22, Hamlet.... Oh, the woes of an ambitious reader, haha.

I guess the best decision at this point is to sleep on it and decide in the morning, but we'll see! Why does everything have to look so good?!


  1. so many good ones to choose from. What did you finally decide on?

    1. I agree, Stefanie! I finally decided on "As I Lay Dying" by William Faulkner.
