This week’s Weekly Geek project reminds me of why I started this blog in the first place. To introduce people to the books I’ve been reading and to connect with other people who love books. I find I have not written reviews for all the books I have read and enjoyed recently. As a new blogger, I am still hesitant and not sure of my reviewing skills. Other bloggers have encouraged me and made me feel very welcome. So, I promise to review more books and, in the spirit of Dewey, link to other reviews and ask people to link to mine. There are several ways to search for book reviews including:
Semicolon’s Saturday Review Of Books
As for what I’m reading right now, Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh, from page 307:
The Burnham compound in Kidderpore was a large one, consisting of several godowns and bankshalls. The shed that served as the gomusta’s private daftar lay in one corner of the compound, adjoining a lane. When prospective clients wished to avail themselves privately of Baboo Nob Kissin’s sevices as a bespoke moneylender, it was there, Paulette knew, that they went to meet him. This, for instance, was what her father had done – but for herself, in her current situation, the risks attendant upon venturing into property owned by her former benefactor were too great to make this a comfortable option; she decided instead to waylay the gomusta as he stepped off his ferry, at the nearby ghat.
Have a wonderful week!
