Back to my traditional format for the Sunday (Evening) Post.
Books I have finished since the last post:
Emerald City, a book of short stories by Jennifer Egan, author of Manhattan Beach (to be reviewed this coming week)
Boy, Snow, Bird, a strange, really different novel (also to be reviewed this coming week)
Uncommon Type, short stories by Tom Hanks (reviewed recently on this blog)
Playing With Fire by Tess Gerritsen, author of “Rissoli and Isles,” TV series (book to be reviewed soon)
Barkskins by Annie Proulx, author of The Shipping News
Continuing to Read:
Anticipating Reading: End of Life Book Club, recommended by a blogger friend; and Where’d You Go, Bernadette, my Third Tuesday Book Club selection for March
To be completely honest, I had started several of the books finished earlier in my down time when the start of my semester was delayed by icy weather, but once the semester was underway, much of the time I would have used for reading was spent grading, planning, and creating and typing handouts. We hosted our Bible Study/Support Group on Thursday, and a day was dedicated to shopping for new slacks for school, then returning two of the pairs two days later. It was a busy week, but My Better Half and I accomplished two major projects, including a session with the plumber and a session with our “computer guy”/ friend who checked out our security and “got us up to speed.” It promises to be another busy week, and I can hardly wait to see my class Wednesday and tell them what a wonderful job they did on the three minor writing assignments they did last time. It always is a blessing when you have such wonderful “raw material” to shape into excellent writers. Enjoy your week and KEEP ON READING!
