I had every intention to start with the "Bleak House" Readalong, hosted by Zen Leaf, that started on August 25th. But I just didn't get started on the book until this week. I am going to try to catch up in the next couple of weeks. I'm glad I've already seen the BBC adaptation of this book; it's greatly helping me to appreciate the book.
I've had another article published (finally--I was quite a slacker on submitting over the summer). This time I've got some recommendations for the readers of Omaha.net. None of them will come as any surprise to those of you who read this blog regularly. I do wonder if you can figure out which book it was that ruined my summer vacation reading!
list of 11 literary holidays that every book lover should know. The list includes Bloom Day on June 16th, which featured so prominently in "South of Broad" by Pat Conroy which I read and reviewed earlier this year, as well as Winnie the Pooh Day (January 18th) and Limerick Day (May 12th).
And from The Guardian comes this article about the bookcase you want to live in. It's called The Ark, has a spiral staircase and is lined with 6,000 books. Think you might like one in your house? You'll need a soaring ceiling--it's five stories tall!
