Reading Envy 141: Profound and Tedious Work

Yanira and Jenny gather again at the turning of the year to talk about books we have read and liked lately, and books we hope to read in the near future. We are not afraid, not of tedium, not of long books, okay but maybe we don't want to read about whales.
