Summer 2016

Getting unstuck from writing is challenging. Time to read the book called On Being Stuck.

Martin Eden by Jack London

Headed to bookstore to buy a copy of Martin Eden by Jack London to read this summer.  I enjoy reading novels involving writers and the writing process.  I recently read The Other Story by Tatiana De Rosnay.

MAZY MOUSE

Reading more than one book at a time is like being a mouse in a maze: you never quite know where you are going.

At the moment, I am bouncing back and forth between A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett and Nora Webster by Colm Tóibín.

Terry Pratchett’s collection of nonfiction essays demonstrates his remarkable ability to write with humor and with humanity on topics as diverse as science fiction conventions and wearing hats.

In his ninth and latest novel, Nora Webster, Colum Tóibín dramatizes the life of a middle-aged widow coping with her family and friends in a small town in Ireland in the late 1960s.

Halfway through both, I am contemplating adding a third book from the maze that is my library.
