My friend Dr. Write had this to say about books. Lovely, isn't it?
Meanwhile, I thought I'd account for what I've been reading. Which isn't much, frankly, although I hope to change that.
This week I've read Advanced Reading Copies of soon-to-be-released graphic novels by Shannon Hale and Nathan Hale. (Not married. Not related.) I liked them both. (I mean the books written by the not-married Hales, not the Hales themselves.) (Although I like the Hales themselves, too.) And let me say that reading graphic novels is a pleasure because it takes me back to the days when I sat on Wendy and Diana's front porch during the summer, eating cookie dough while we read Ripley's Believe-it-or-Not comic books. Also, I was a fan of Tales from the Crypt, although that series induced in me a life-long fear of accidentally being buried alive.
CAN'T YOU TELL I'M NOT DEAD, I imagined myself shouting. From the crypt.
I've also read part of CLEOPATRA by Stacy Schiff and part of THE GIRL FROM VENICE by Martin Cruz Smith. I like them both.
What are you reading?
