My last Sunday (Evening) Post was on September 10th, so I have a good deal to post about the reading I have done since then.

Started Reading:

Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk  I used this book, which was contributed to my Little Free Library for my First Line Friday post recently and made the comment that the opening was so rough I wondered if I could read it. I read the first chapter so far and am still not sure.

Continuing to Read:

Dogsbody by Gary Paulsen The story seems very promising, but because I have several library books checked out presently, I have had to put it aside.

Fix It, Clean It, and Make It Last by the editors of FC&A (whatever that is) is a DIY book which is going very slowly because I am taking copious notes. It, too, was donated to my LFL.

The Inexplainable Logic of My life is by one of my favorite authors, Saenz, who also wrote Ari and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, which was my introduction to this amazing author  It is on my Kindle app.

My Better Half and I are continuing to read aloud The Obelisk Gate.

Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being is a real “find,” and the perfect follow-up to listening to The Elegance of the Hedgehog.


Breakfast with Buddha by Merullo

Just Juice and The Burning Questions of Bingo Brown, two children’s chapter books which will be featured on Saturday’s Saturday Mornings for Kids post this coming week

I Want to Start Soon:

Bluebird, Bluebird, by Attica Locke, the Texas Gulf Coast Read and the October selection for our Third Tuesday Book Club

Evidence of Flossing by blogging friend Jennifer Payne, a collection of poetry

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger, a novel we are considering as a book club selection  We have a “rule” that someone in the group has to have read the book before we consider it for a month’s selection.

As you can see, I have my work cut out for me, and since several of these are library books, I need to “get cracking.”

Happy Reading!

This year marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (See "Introduction,"first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I have just completed 30 years of teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This is after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District, adding up to a total of teaching 50 years in all. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
