While I Was Being Anesthetized………

While my cheek was being numbed by the nurse’s needle, I suddenly thought ……….. the next book I read is going to be John Steinbeck’s East of Eden. This thought came to me because the anesthetist told me she had at long last finished reading that book. Her reading rate was 8 to 9 pages a night. It has taken her quite a while. I last talked with her 3 months ago and she was somewhere in about the middle of the book. Obviously she doesn’t have much time for reading.. IThree months ago I was recommending that she read Phillipa Gregory but I have since gone off her. So I suddenly thought of Mahouf’s The Palace Walk. I wonder if she will like it.
