Sunday Salon- Save Bookstores Day, and Upcoming Posts
Resurrecting Hebrew, by Ilan Stavans, a history of Hebrew's growth into a modern spoken language, and
The Door, a book of poetry by Margaret Atwood.
I'm really happy with my little haul! The sale continues today so if you're in the Boston area I encourage you to check it out. You can find hours and the location of the warehouse on their website, www.harvard.com.
Today? Today's the usual- groceries, my improv class, maybe some relaxing if I'm lucky. I'm almost done reading The Bone People and I'm still reading Caramelo, by Sandra Cisneros, which I like but oh boy it's long. After that, I've got two books on deck to round out the month: Lucy, by Jamaica Kincaid, and The Comfort of Strangers by Ian McEwan.
Tomorrow I have a post on bookstores charging for events and I'll be reviewing all audiobooks this week, in celebration of Audiobook Month, which is coming to an end. Look for those on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday I'll have some summer reading suggestions.
And watch for an announcement on Friday! I'm starting a new challenge blog and it launches at the end of the week; if you like European and world literary fiction you'll want to take part!
What are you up to today? More Sunday Salon here.
