Friday I took the train home from work. Normally I carpool with my boyfriend’s mom (we work together) but I stayed a little late in anticipation of a potential meeting (more on that later). Anyway, I realized I left my Kindle at home that day (assuming that I would be riding in a car and not on a train) and my iPod battery was dead. Conundrum! What was I supposed to do for the 35 minute train ride?
So of course I decided to stop at the Coop (remember when I discovered it?) to see if I could find something to read. (duh, you should have seen that one coming). So after browsing for about 20 minutes (good thing I take the regular T and not the commuter rail) I finally decided on Luka and the Fire of Life by Salman Rushdie. I think it’s supposed to be a young adult novel, but so far so good. I’m about 30 pages into it.
Though I think that this is sort of a sideways sequel from other novels he’s written for another character. I have other novels of his in my goodreads queue so I’ll have to check them out.
So many books!
Have you read books by Salman Rushdie before? Thoughts?
