It seems like all I’ve done since Friday is run around so today I’m planning to stay indoors and just read. I’ve got chocolate nearby and the coffee machine is ready so this should be fun.
I’m about 150 pages from finishing Half of a Yellow Sun. This has been a wonderful story so far but I’ve had to walk away from the story at times. Reading about war time violence is just hard. I know I enjoy murder mysteries and this book is a work of fiction but knowing it is based on a very real conflict makes all the difference.
I do hope to finish the short story The View from Castle Rock tonight. Finally, I’m reading something by Alice Munro. She’s one those writers I’ve been meaning to get to for a long time.
A question for you guys – do you read The Believer? Do you like it? I have only briefly looked through it in the past and now I can’t find it at any of my local bookstores anymore. Anyway, I saw that they have a Believer Jumble Sale – 10 past issues for $15. What a deal. I think I will get that.
Last but not least, if you are interested in joining the next The Slaves of Golconda discussion, don’t forget to vote for your book choice by tomorrow.
Alright, I hope everyone is enjoying The Sunday Salon.
