Is Our Concept of “Well-Read” Elitist? – This drives me crazy. The husband gets on his high horse about this sometimes. He thinks I’m not “well-read” because I don’t read what he considers to be classics.
Douglas Adams made me a writer – Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, and Terry Pratchett in one article!
Reading This Week
I’m about halfway through a bunch of books.Â These ones are new this week.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz ZafÃ³n
I’m reading this one for the Travel the World in Books read a long.
“Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealerâ€™s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one JuliÃ¡n Carax. But when he sets out to find the authorâ€™s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Caraxâ€™s books in existence. Soon Danielâ€™s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelonaâ€™s darkest secrets–an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.” from Goodreads
I’m listening to this on audio.
“Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can’t afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father’s dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.
Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack’s help on a local serial killer case.” from Goodreads
I’ll be looking for your review of Shadow of the Wind. It sounds like something I may like. Here’s my post: http://ebogie.blogspot.com/2015/03/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-39.html
Looks to me like you are reading top notch books! I haven’t read anything on your top ten and enjoyed your discussion post.
I had to check out your Top Ten Books post! (And have to admit I hadn’t read any of them!!)
I have been meaning to read Kim Harrison’s series for some time now. Especially since it has ended so if I want to I can just binge read them all. I hope that you get lots of reading done this week. Have a great one 🙂
I keep meaning to finish Shadow of the Wind – I read Angels Game (first, weirdly) and loved it so much – for some reason I didn’t get as into SOTW but I plan to give it another shot!
