I’m beginning my Sunday Salon today with the book with which I planned to get started last Sunday, but really did not do so. That book is The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. I’m not going to lie but I had a hard time getting into it, but I just got to one of the most amazing chapters I think I’ve read in any book in a long while so I’m hanging on. I’ll write more later in the day about my experiences thus far with the book, including the chapter about which I’m talking, and any other reading I manage to do today to keep mostly on topic here: about actual reading.
Before then I’m going to go…
Slightly off topic: A review of my week
- Monday: In honor of the start of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, I highlighted my favorite blogs (who didn’t make the final cut, but should have) for the awards.
- Wednesday: I reviewed: Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy: a review of the book by Donald B. Kraybill, Steven M. Nolt and David L. Weaver-Zercher about the Amish school shooting in Nickel Mines, Pa. in October 2006.
- Friday: I participated in Friday Finds, with this week’s books of gods, God and Christ Himself I found on Thursday at the bookstore where I started working part-time recently. Among the books were authors Christopher Moore and Terry Pratchett.
- Friday: I also participated in The end of BBAW: Highlighting my top three reviews and six new blogs to me.
and even a little further off topic but fun
On my blog Unfinished Rambling(s), I posted Springtime for Hitler in South Korea, which started with a conversation I had with a friend from South Korea who told me about an ad there using Nazi imagery. So far, it’s been my most popular post on that blog, thanks to friend Jenn Thorson from Of Cabbages and Kings submitting it to Reddit. It just struck me as odd and something about which I had to post.
So what are you reading today? I’ll be checking in with many of you later, but if you want to drop a line here about what you’re reading, that’s fine too. I look forward to connecting with some of you later either here or on your blogs or both– after I do a little reading this afternoon.
