I waited until October first to begin reading this month's book. As I write this Murray Rider has it in his hands. I couldn't put it down and completed it yesterday! That is really quick for me but I found the story very compelling.
Here are a few ideas to keep in mind while reading:
The Biblical story of Martha & Mary
How can and author can elicit laughter and tears at the same time?
As a side note there was this article on a site called Flavorwire on September 26th. It recounted how there was never enough time to read and there is a cure. Here is a sample of their rendition of some very famous books:
Dante's Inferno: Some woman puts Dante Through Hell.
Upton Sinclair's The Jungle: Bad things happen, worse things happen, better things happen, awful things happen, Jurgis discovers socialism and gets all happy.
Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn: Goes rafting, goes home
Thoreau's Walden: A truly rich man doesn't have money but rather courage, truth, and an inner glory that transcends the passiveness of our physical beings. That's why I'm going to live in the boonies.
All of those book i have not read but maybe there's more in those books than the author (Alison Nastasi) could grasp. Any Comments?????
Think about the 15 second statement of Winter Garden but don't give it away since there are many who are still reading. Don't forget, pass the site around to your friends and ask them to join the book blog.
Til next time,
