I’m completely chagrined to see that it’s been since April– (April!!)– since I posted anything here. Summer’s nearly over, and I miss blogging, but as the podcast has just taken off in an amazing way, along with other very nice things as well, so this has kind of slipped through my fingers.
I’m updating my book lists here today, and I’m going to try to post up at least one thing a week for awhile, to get back into practice. It should help a bit that we’ve started doing a book discussion group called Ark Between the Covers as a tangent with the podcast [check out the Facebook group HERE]. We’re beginning with Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird,” in honor of its anniversary. I’ve never read it (I know?! right?), so this should be interesting.
I’m also in the middle of reading Birthmarks by Sarah Dunant (a good Brit detective story recommended and lent to me by a friend), Tangerine by Edward Bloor (previewing, as it’s the novel we’ll read as part of our new curriculum this year), and Blue Box Boy by Matthew Waterhouse (an autographed copy! a kind gift, and a really good read, especially for any classic Who fans).
While I get myself sorted out and organized over here, go and cheer on Lulumankiller at Life Under A Rock, as she does a really cool Read-a-Thon this weekend. We loves her!
