Read-a-Thon April 2011 (1) - my pile

Just a brief post before the big start at 2pm (CET)

I'm going to read first of all the historical novel Imprimatur by Rita Monaldi and Francesco Sorti. I'm just quite curious what difference is between a one-author novel and a two-autor-novel.  (Even: Is there any difference?) For me writing a novel is a solitary activity, and a bit hard to imagine, how to write a novel together with someone other. 

It's almost 500 pages with really tiny fonts, it will keep for a while.  

Not finished but only 20-25 pages are still left in the book: The Ministry of Pain by Dubravka Ugresic. Maybe I'll finish it during this Read-A-Thon. It's about a teacher, a young woman from the ex-Yugoslavia  living now in Amsterdam. What to do in a foreign world after Yugoslavia doesn't exist anymore.What to do with the own childhood. What to remember... (etc) 
 Oh, yes, and here is the book Atonement by Ian McEwan as reserve, but this is the first piece of my  "currently reading" column in this blog, and it's something like a "close reading", more slowly than usual, because I want to write a lots of things about this book in this blog, maybe it would be unfortunate to change my reading strategy of this novel. So, probably not reading during the Read-A-Thon, but who knows...

The second reserve is Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
