I missed my sunset here because I'm inside, watching a Giants game on the telly, and reading during commercials and pitching changes! One of my favorite things to do, and of course my kitties are circling me for attention. This is the life! Thanks for being a new friend too.
I was so excited to see that someone mentioned "moloka'i" as their favorite read this summer! I manage an indie bookstore and that book was the #1 selling paperback for us for almost a year. I just got my hands on his next book coming out spring of 2009, it's called "Honolulu". Looking forward to this one too!
For September, it's "Year of Wonders" by Geraldine Brooks. Not sure how this one will go over, it's about the plague deaths in medieval Europe. Sometimes Rheta gets on threads (as do we all) and last year she read a few on the topic! We read Brook's book "March" and enjoyed it. It was the story of the *father* of the Little Women, set during the Civil War.
We just met Tuesday night, and the August book was "Plague of Doves" by Louise Erdrich. Oly half of us read the book, and I think I was the only one who liked it--not an easy read, but Erdrich can sure write a beautiful sentence, and create characters that stick with you.
