JP: late good Tuesday evening to you. No playlist but here is my updated reading list. Haven’t read any current books but I’m enjoying what I read last year and up to now.
“The Ruby Ring” by Diane Haeger
“Moloka’i” by Alan Brennert
“A Density of Souls” by Christopher Rice
“The Married Man” by Edmund White
JP: the attached picture is author Chris McKinney who wrote “The Tattoo”. Started reading it on 03/16 and finished it six days later. Quite intense, unhappiness and disatisfication by Ken(the main character) on every page. Ken wants to move forward, be a better guy and he does work at it but has this mental chain to stay in Hawa’i’i and feels going to the mainland will not be a better place to better himself. Reading this book and “Molokai’” makes me want to visit Hawai’i again.
JP - “Native Son” by Richard Wright was the next book I was going to read but dropped it…it’s too intense for me after reading “The Tattoo”.
BW818: I bought the novel “The Hours” at a library book sale for $1. That’s a bargain. Still undecided if this is the next book to read. I’ll read it before watching the movie on dvd.
C Ho: Hi. I’m ready for a new week and season. I read your tweets what books you read. I just finished “The Brethren” by John Grisham. It is the first Grisham novel I’ve read, I read the book in five days(helps that I never go to sleep), the book may be 12-years old but the story is not dated. There is one character who I didn’t expect to be cut-off and it was the lawyer for the three incarcerated judges. The first surprise was the presidential candidate - never expected him to be replying to a gay personal ad and I had no idea that there was some type of gay slant in this book. It didn’t offend me but I was curious as to how this started and where it was leading to. For some reason I thought I would struggle reading a Grisham nove. Don’t know why but once I read the first chapter I was hooked on reading “The Brethren.” My next book I’m reading is in the following post.
C HO and JB: last book to read for Fall 2012-Winter 2012 is “When The Elephants Dance” by Tess Uriza Holthe.
Yesterday there was a book sale at Out Of The Closet. Books on sale for 50 cents! As I was scanning the book shelves I stumbled upon this book. Never heard of it, read the back cover what’s it about and liked what I read.
BW818: do you have this many paper backs in that spare bedroom at your condo? have a nice day
Mr. S: how many books you read this summer? I read a dozen. Latest two books was “The Book of Salt” and last night I finished “The Secret Life of Bees”.
2nd installment of 2g with Trina! You mean it’s not always sunny EVERYWHERE??? ;)))
MJ: My first word that I haven’t forgotten after reading “House of Mirth” - propinquity
MJ: My third word that I haven’t forgotten after reading “House of Mirth” - centripetal
MJ - My last word that I haven’t forgotten after reading “House of Mirth” - vacuity
Happy Easy Fast. Even if there is no holiday I like what she wants to do - read a book in peace and quiet(not quite) the entire day.
kenoshakickers: I know some people really hate this Jewish holiday, but i’m really excited to be away from electronics and just relax and read a book in peace and quite for a whole day. but the fasting part still sucks ass.
