firstly, did they change my wordpress toolbar? i don’t think i can handle much more disruption in my online routines! i am way too old for this.
in order to get back into the routine of reading, i had to put my neal stephenson book on hold for the moment. it was just so dense, i found myself choosing not to read at all, rather than slog through it. i think it is a book for less busy times.
i turned instead to ‘the queen of patpong.’ i don’t recall purchasing this book, so i couldn’t remember why i had it on my kindle, or what it was going to be about. i have to say, i really enjoyed it. to the point that i kept wanting to go check back in with the characters to see what they were up to! and then sadly realized i had finished the book. it was part mystery, part action, with exotic flavor from being set in thailand.
when i was searching for an imagine for this post, i discovered that this is actually the fourth book in a series!! hooray! it also looks kind of like they are making it into a movie.
after returning from my literary journey to the far east, i thought i would try ‘the butterfly’s daughter,’ a book recommended by my mom. it too is steeped in exotic spices, this time the flavors of mexico. i haven’t made it too far into the novel, but i am already hooked. i really reminds me of some of the barbara kinsolver novels, which is a good thing!
what about you readers? anyone reading anything good?
