Not a thing….
The Thin Place by Kathryn Davis — I mention that last week and said that I wasn’t sure about it. When I wrote about this week I talked about how our exceptions of a book can alter our experience of reading it. I am further along in my reading and I am enjoying the writing. Can’t say I know what is going on, but I will continue to read.
A friend of mine, Christa Allan, author of Walking on Broken Glass, help organize a One Book, One School program at Lakeshore High where she also teaches English. They chose to read Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The program was written up in the local paper. It sounds very exciting.
Kim over at Sophisticated Dorkiness got to see 84, Charing Cross Road on STAGE. I’m so jealous. I expressed my love of 84, Charing Cross Road and a few novels in letters this week too.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is organized by Sheila over at Book Journey. Be sure to stop by her site and read the great blogs of the other participates.
( On a personal note I continue to thank St. Jude, St. Rita, the Blessed Mother, and Heavenly Father for all the prayers they’ve answered and I continue to pray for their help and blessings.)
