Hey, I wanted to apologize to any of you (Michele) who started our ambitious reading program with All the King's Men and wondered what happened to me. :)
I have been reading as planned, but I had remembered that I had purchased two books about Lincoln for my Kindle (the week before I figured out the reading program) that I had wanted to read before I see the movie with Daniel Day-Lewis.
So I am simultaneously booking it (ha) through Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness and Team of Rivals.
Actually, I'm about to finish Lincoln's Melancholy and start Team of Rivals. And I'm also reading All the King's Men.
I don't usually do this, because it's dumb and a bit confusing. But I'm on a movie deadline, people. A movie deadline. (I don't actually think I'm going to finish Team of Rivals before I see the movie, but I am going to try before it leaves theaters.)
By the way, I'm reading the version of ATKM that WASN'T edited by Noel Polk, and Michele read the one that WAS, so we are well-rounded and will be able to have a discussion about whichever one you chose to read, if you did.
I won't do this to you again. Or to me. :)
Onward and forward, readers! Onward and forward. And maybe also upward but hopefully not downward.
