I hope you all enjoyed the 11 Day Tutorial Blog Hop last week. It was the only hoppin' I was doing. A week of injuries: I sprained my ankle last Saturday and then Wednesday night (during a thrilling game of Ninja Football, after which I was saving a baby while crossing a rickety bridge in the NorthEast Kingdom) I wound up with cracked ribs.
So ... I'm reading. Alot. And here's the list
Personal Geographies, Jill Berry (awesome and I'll be having a review and giveway comin' up)
How The Light Gets In, MJ Hyland (grim story of an Australian exchange student who comes to the US. Excellent writing, descriptions and very sensitive.)
A Fatal Grace, Louise Penny (Detective Gamache of Quebec solves a murder in Three Pines. Wonderful cast of quirky characters, twists. This is murder mystery of the intellectual sort.)
Color, Victoria Finlay (a history of color; this is just fascinating)
And I just started Let The Great World Spin, Colum McCann. (I usually love the National Book Award winners and this one has started really well).
PS: the fake story of how I broke my ribs is courtesy of comments on Facebook. I don't really play Ninja Football.
