After not participating in Weekly Geeks for a few weeks, I return this week to the weekly meme group. Unfortunately, I couldn’t relate to the last few, although I did enjoy reading about everyone’s different magazines a couple of weeks ago. It gave me some ideas of magazines for which to look, as if I need any more to read.
The rules for this week’s Weekly Geeks are simple:
- In your blog, list any books you’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. If you’re all caught up on reviews, maybe you could try this with whatever book(s) you finish this week.
- Ask your readers to ask you questions about any of the books they want. In your comments, not in their blogs. Most likely, people who will ask you questions will be people who have read one of the books or know something about it because they want to read it.
- Later, take whichever questions you like from your comments and use them in a post about each book. I’ll probably turn mine into a sort of interview-review. Link to each blogger next to that blogger’s question(s).
- Visit other Weekly Geeks and ask them some questions!
I’m pretty much caught up on reviews, except for one: Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe, which I read for the Southern Reading Challenge. I just finished this Saturday night. It’s such a complex book that I’m not sure where to begin. Maybe some of you can help me with some questions. Thanks for any input that y’all are able to give me.
This suggestion by Dewey might be good to keep in mind when formulating your questions: “I don’t want to tell people what to ask, but I’m seeing a lot of “What did you think of ______?” and “What is ______ about?” questions. And I just want to suggest that bloggers might appreciate something more specific to answer.” It’s something I’m trying to keep in mind as later tonight, I formulate a few questions, especially for Dewey with The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
