I wasn’t very active this week here on my blog or in my reading, but I did read two books: Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes (review here) for my feature Monday’s Memory and The Story of A Soul: The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux, which I just finished late last night and for which I plan to have a review much later today.
As for reading today, I plan to start The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, which I’m reading for three different challenges and for a group on Book Blogs on Ning of which I’m a member called travel the world (from a comfy chair). The discussion forum on the book can be found here, if you’d like to join us. Discussion begins Oct. 15.
I have a few on standby as well:
- The Freedom Writers Diary by The Freedom Writers with Erin Gruwell (a late entry for Banned Books Week
- The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon (which I’ve already started but put on hold for other books)
- Superman for Tomorrow: Volumes 1 and 2 by Brian Azzarello, Jim Lee and Scott Williams (two graphic novels from my hometown library).
I’ll be back much later today with the review of St. Therese’s autobiography and perhaps a follow up post on my reading for the day. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this bit of comedy from Jenn at Of Cabbages and Kings: If TV Guide Wrote Classic Book Summaries…
…and this piece of doggerel I wrote earlier for a new feature at one of my other blogs, Unfinished Rambling(s), called Flashback Friday which I reminisced about That Time I Took My College Roommate To See Kenneth Gorelick (Kenny G).
