We had a very nice and fun weekend. It started off with going to BookPeople on Friday to see Lev Grossman talk about his new book The Magicians. I remember getting an ARC for this book a while back and thinking it sounded fun and after hearing him talk about the book I am even more intrested in it. Granted, I have a bunch of other “obligation” reads that I need to get through this month but I really want to read it. Oh and he even had these gorgeous, colorful maps to hand out of Fillory, the setting of The Magicians.
The rest of the weekend was a blur of yoga, biking, and bookbinding. I think I need another couple of free days to catch up on everything else I didn’t get to do. How about you?
As far as reading, I did get to read the latest issue of Bitch Magazine. You have to check it out to see the blurb on Persephone Books. Yay, more press for Persephone. And, there was a really interesting article on Priv Lit. I’d never heard of that before but I can see how that has become a trend. You can check out the article online. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Finally, my current book is a strange read. I think it’s because I just recently finished another Swedish thriller and this one, The Fire Engine that Disappeared, also has a lot of descriptions that are very negative towards women. I think after this one my next read has to be quite different.
Alright, now I do have to go finish that book. So I hope you had a great weekend and have been reading something good.
