Too Many Voices

i have a bad habit of reading more than one book at a time.  For instance:  currently i'm reading Flaubert's Madame Bovary and Faulkner's As I Lay Dying.  Not good.  Although the story lines are strong enough for each book to not be confused, the difference in 'voice' is so opposite that i find myself dealing with too many voices in my head (no comments!) 

So..i've decided to finish one and then tackle the other.  As I Lay Dying is almost complete and i just love it.  The writing is so noisy.  i love the line "My mother is a fish. Jewel's mother is a horse but my mother is a fish...."

Anyway...on to reading!
