Since last week’s Sunday Salon, I’ve finished a few books, including Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (review coming later this week), Right As Rain by George P. Pelecanos and Amish Grave: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy by Donald B. Kraybill, Steven M. Nolt and David L. Weaver-Zercher about the October 2006 shootings near Nickel Mines, Pa. (I plan on reviewing this later today.)
I’ve also reviewed The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho based off questions from Nicole Bonia of Linus’s Blanket and she reviewed Monique and the Mango Rains based off questions I gave her for this week’s Weekly Geeks.
Today, even though I’m “supposed to be reading” Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimananda Ngozi Adichie for an online discussion forum, I’ve decided instead I’m going to read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, a book that my brother-in-law loaned to me this past week. He also loaned me A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore and The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett, but my wife is reading the Pratchett book and since I’ve been on a comic book kick over the last few months, I figured why not read Chabon’s book.
I’ll be checking in later with my review of Amish Grace and also updating y’all on what I think of the Chabon book. Until then…hope you’re all have a good day of reading. I’m off to Mass.
