The drive there and back gave me a great chance to get some reading in which was a good thing because I couldn't put down Tom Franklin's "Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter." For me, it's definitely worthy of all of the praise it's received.
Now it's on to Henry Kissinger's On China. I've mentioned before that my dad used to teach current events classes and always had the news on every evening. Growing up in when I did, that meant that Henry Kissinger was a person that I heard a lot about. I'm not sure I'll agree with him (we have pretty different political viewpoints) but I do respect his experience and knowledge and I'm looking forward to his thoughts on a very power country.
Mercy arrived in my mailbox this past week. I've been really cutting way back on taking on books for the coming months but being of Danish descent, I couldn't pass up this one by Danish author, Jussi Adler-Olsen.
Think I'll be reading this one only when it's light out!
Timothy Schaffert, author of The Coffins of Little Hope has created a companion site for the book. As you may recall from my interview, part of the book revolves around a children's book series and this site is the site that the publisher of those books would have set up. The Coffins of Little Hope has now gone into it's second printing!
I've recently learned that Rainbow Rowell's Attachments is also available in audio form for those of you who also enjoy audio books. I'm also hoping to be able to post an interview with Rowell soon--we're trying to put that together!
What's on your agenda for the coming week? Do you have big plans for the holiday weekend?
