The breakfast I mentioned was sponsored by the Whatcom Literacy Council and we had Nancy Pearl give a really interesting talk about fourteen new books she thinks we should read this year. She is familiar to me from listening to her on NPR. I immediately went to the library website afterwards and put my name in to receive four of them. Since they are all recently published, I was put on a waiting list, but I should receive at least one of them fairly soon.
I'm going to head down to my local bookstore and purchase one of her recommendations, which is so long I couldn't possibly finish it in two weeks, and you cannot renew when somebody else is waiting for the book. It sounds like a doozy: The Woman Who Lost Her Soul by Bob Shacochis. Nancy said when she finished it, she was unable to pick up another book for awhile, because this one had practically taken over her life. She said there were some uncomfortable parts, but it is incredible and well worth reading, her favorite book of 2013.
Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll be back here to post on Tuesday, unless they move the order of the days like they did last week.
