Bout of Books 15: day 7 plans & day 6 progress

Read 260 pages of 

The Occupation Trilogy by Patrick Modiano, which finished La Place de l'√Čtoile the first novella of the trilogy. I'll take a deep breath before I continue to the next one. These are very early works, written when he was in his early twenties. Lots of promise and he did get a whole lot better.

Read off and on all week I have been perusing   Plotted: A Literary Atlas by Andrew DeGraff. This is book of clever maps based on classic reading (Hamlet, Robinson Crusoe, Moby Dick, and many others). It is mostly pictorial. There is an introduction, one page commentaries on the maps, and a brief list of suggested readings. There are about 26 pages of text in this 126 page book, but the maps are a delight to study and I spent a lot of time with this book. Not sure how to count the pages for the read-a-thon, but considering time spent I'm counting all 126 pages

Total for Sat, day 6: 325
Off and on all week(the map book) 126
Total so far: 1,405

For Sunday I will start another library book: either God Loves Haiti by Dimitry Elias Leger or The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian. (note chose the Haiti book because it's due sooner.)
