Sunday Salon: Changes Afoot, At Least For Now
Having said that, I plan to spend some time today working on some reviews for the upcoming week. But that's the thing- pretty much all the time I'll have for writing reviews and other features for the blog will be on the weekends. I might be able to squeak out a little now and then during the week, but not much.
So for today, I'm planning to write a couple of book reviews and do a little reading. I'm reading The Three Weissmanns of Westport, by Cathleen Schine, which is not high literature but is a fun-ish light read, a takeoff on Sense and Sensibility. I decided to read it because the book I've been working on is also a Jane Austen update and I wanted to see how someone else tackled the same idea. Mine isn't S&S but I'm curious nonetheless to see how another writer interprets Austen for a modern audience. It's a fun read and I hope mine will be, too, when it's finally done. Schine has made some changes, of course, in the specifics of the structure but I like it. I'm reading this for review and hopefully I'll have something by next week.
What are you reading today? I hope you have a great Sunday.
