Reading? I'll be doing some of that. I'm almost done with Alexander Maksik's You Deserve Nothing, first in Europa Editions' new Tonga line of books. It's great! It's engaging and absorbing, a story about a teacher in a Paris high school and the students who love him. But the book is no sentimental Mr. Chips, don't worry! When I'm done I think I have to dive into Michael Ondaatje's new one, The Cat's Table. One of my friends generously sent me her galley; I can't wait. And then after that we'll see.

Also coming up is Banned Books Week, starting at the end of the week. I'll be participating in ALA's Virtual Read-Out, so this week I'll be preparing a video of myself reading from one of my favorite banned books, Robert Cormier's The Chocolate War. Look for the video next week, or on the special YouTube channel where participants will be uploading. And upload your own video!
What are you up to today? Reading anything good- or not so good? You can find more Sunday Salon here.
