Happy Sunday Salon! I can’t believe it is just a few days ’til those of us in the US celebrate Thanksgiving. The weather in Seattle has been cold and rainy and I have been sick. Even stayed home from school for a day to try and recuperate. So I’m now spending the entire weekend curled up with hot tea and a good book. Well, actually several good books.
Besides finishing the second part of Kristin Lavransdatter, continuing to read Guernica and writing two reviews, I have started Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood. I reread Oryx and Crake in September to prepare for this new novel and find I like the new one better. I’m not sure why but will make an effort to describe my reasons when I write my review.
I am thinking about my reading for 2010. I will be joining in on Moby Dick Monday as soon as I’m done with the Kristin Lavransdatter read-along. I was planning on reading Melville’s classic sometime this winter and this is a great way to read along with others.
I have signed up for several challenges, plan on joining in on Amanda’s GLBT 2010 Challenge and am hoping some of my favorites from 2009 will come around again for the new year. What about you? Are you signing up for new challenges? Which are your favorites from this past year?
I hope you all have a great reading week and a happy Thanksgiving, how ever you celebrate this glorious harvest holiday.
