Coming really close to the end of this round of revision

Today I finished reading my 17th(!) book by Anthony Trollope: He Knew He Was Right. I have five more left on my to-read list: Three Clerks; The Fixed Period; Rachel Ray; Lady Anna; and The American Senator.

At this point it’s really gone beyond reading for any kind of edification. On that score I’ve gotten all I can possibly get from Trollope. I just really really enjoy reading his work. He’s so consistently delightful. And his books are just different enough that you feel as though they’re worth reading. I’ve yet to read a really bad Trollope book

I’m also nearing the end of this round of revision. Feeling very happy with Tell Em They’re Amazing. Impossible to know what the future holds, but would not be unhappy if it went out into the world as my second YA novel =]

    You are the only person I know who has read close to as much Trollope as me aside from my 90-year-old grandpa. It is like crack to me and I do not know why.

      Hahahahahaha. I know! I wonder about this too!!! I mean many of his books are very similar. Some have EXACTLY the same plot (i.e. FRAMLEY PARSONAGE and THE SMALL HOUSE AT ALLINGTON). But they’re just different enough to still be worth it.
