Sunday Salon, August 16th 2008
This has been a busy week for me, but I did manage to get a little reading in. I'm actually in the middle of reading several books. Call me crazy!!
I'm finishing The Heretic's Daughter and I thought I would have that review for you, but you will will see that next week...sorry. I can't wait for the ending..although we all know what happened in Salem Village.
The Toss of a Lemon, a long epic novel spanning the years of 1896-1962 is the story of an Indian woman, her family and the life she leads as a Brahmin. Fabulous!!!
The Winds of Tara, remember the unauthorized sequel to Gone With the Wind? I love this book!!! I want to savor each page. Thanks to Katherine Pinotti for breathing spirit and life back into Scarlett O'Hara. We are fortunate to have this writer who has recreated Scarlett's character in every aspect. It is a treat to hear her infamous sassy Southern conversations and witty banter again. GWTW fans should jump up and down that they have to send to Australia for this book. It is worth every penny though.
Alive in Necropolis is nearly finished, I really like this book, I just put it on the back burner for a while. Too many fish to fry.
Lots of new books arrived this week and I'll probably talk about one or two of them this coming week. Another trip to Good Will was somewhat successful. My course will start on Monday full time for the entire week and all my reading will be African American History. Tuesday we set sail and learn all about the Amistad, but we'll be on a different boat. For those of you who were interested, I did post a listing of the required reading.
A couple of my reviews posted this week.
The Glimmer Palace, by Beatrice Colin
The Dog Who Belongs to No One, by Amy Hest
Great news!!! My sleeping disorder has been identified, so no more falling asleep while driving. I say that's an awesome week. Yippee!!! Happy reading to all!!!
