This one goes out to the readers (boldmoves and spygrl1, I'm particularly looking in your direction):

So about the only real upside to my job at this point is that it gives me many, many hours of virtually uninterrupted reading time. I've put away more books (and more really good books) in the past two months than I did in the previous ten (and if pressed, I'll provide a list and bullet reviews). My concern is this: I'm about 15 pages into Philip Roth's The Plot Against America. And I'm DIGGING it. Here's the thing: I'm quite aware of the accusations of misogyny against Roth, and, well, I feel guilty about enjoying his stuff. So here's my question: what's my penance? What/who do I read next? Zadie Smith? Marilynne Robinson? Help a brother out!
