Book Lust

I just heard another interview with Nancy Pearl on NPR. This time she was reviewing books to read on a rainy day (they've had 23 days straight of rain in Seattle). She was leaning toward science fiction and spy mysteries, so I was not enticed. Then she started to describe an autobiography which is the first volume of a projected four volume set. The writer talks about his adolescence and she read a few sentences saying that she absolutely loved his sentence structure. It was so cool. I can't remember the phrase now, but it was so surprisingly descriptive. I'll go on and find the author. I've been wanting an excuse to visit the library.

The Week

Thanks to Daddy, now I have a way of getting all the news of the land in one compact, do-able, news magazine per week. I have finally caught up (I had six stacked up for a while there) while Lyle's mom was visiting and I am looking forward to reading the new one tonight. I still rely on Newsweek if there is an in depth article I want (have time to) read, but The Week is just perfect for giving an overview of what is going on in the world.

Thank you Daddy.
