It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
This past week I finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini and began working on book club ideas for The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon. I also started reading The Snow Child, the debut novel by Eowyn Ivey. What a fascinating author! She works at an independent bookstore in Alaska and lives like the characters in her novel. Here is a snippet from her bio on EowynIvey.com:
As a family, they harvest salmon and wild berries, keep a vegetable garden, turkeys and chickens, and they hunt caribou, moose, and bear for meat. Because they don’t have a well and live outside any public water system, they haul water each week for their holding tank and gather rainwater for their animals and garden. Their primary source of home heat is a woodstove, and they harvest and cut their own wood.
I am also listening to Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. I began listening to this book many months ago, but in the middle of a road trip I had to switch to another book because I had only loaded the first 2 parts of the novel onto my listening device. I am so glad I have finally come back to it. The writing is beautiful and very thought-provoking.
Can’t wait to see what everyone else is reading this week!
