Here is what the Desketeers are reading this week!
Newbie Desketeer Jeanne is reading Beneath a Marble Sky by John Shors. She reports that she does not love it but needs to plow through it for her Book Group. This sadly, is what I refer to as a Death March sort of read.
Marianne has begun Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg. Marianne is unsure how she is feeling about it because she feels it’s “slow”.
Barbara M. is enjoying the memoir Day of Honey: A Memoir of Food, Love and War by Annia Ciezadlo. Through food we learn about the author’s time in Lebanon and Iraq.
I started Chinaberry Sidewalks by Rodney Crowell. This memoir is all about the singer/songwriter’s Texas childhood and the language and pacing are just wonderful. Much like a song in fact!
Citizen Asha is reading many many books, but I made her choose one. Without hesitation she picked Alice Walker’s book of poems Hard Times Require Furious Dancing. Asha says, “It's a book filled with poetry from the great Alice Walker..What’s not to love?” Indeed!
