So much to read! So little time!

Just got my ARC for Adam Johnson's The Orphan Master's Son in the mail from Random House and man do I have poor impulse control.  I'm like a raccoon sometimes when it comes to books.  (In the way that they're distracted by shiny things.  Not the picking through your garbage kind of way). Sometimes, despite how amazing the book is that I'm reading, when I get a new one from the library or in the mail, I get super distracted by how excited I am to start reading it that I eventually give in and try to justify to myself reading both books at once. So Graham Greene's The End of the Affair has now been downgraded from bedside to commute status (purely a decision based on weight of the book) and dove in.  I'm only about 20 pages in but already SO good.  Expect a full review in a week or so...unless something else exciting comes in the mail...then I make no promises.
