You know you're in a reading rut when even Anais Nin's erotica bores you. I've been reading The Delta of Venus and I just can't get into it. It's a severe case of literary ennui, the likes of which I haven't experienced in quite some time.
Next week I'm--happily--headed to Portland for the Public Library Association's 2010 conference. While I'm there, I'll be hitting up world-famous Powell's Books. So my question to you, dear readers, is this: what should I buy there? Any must-reads I should hunt for? What's the best way to get out of a reading rut?
