There are some great summer reading lists out---- Blue at the Blue Remembered Hills-of course is reading books I would like to read and add to my list.
Am I kidding myself ? My hands are full---of books. I have read through some on this List and am simultaneously reading a couple of biographies for the second time-more memoirs really which can easily be picked up the second time round without feeling you've slighted it somehow.
From the list--- The Stranger's Child- a real exciting start-fizzling out by the end. That's disappointing-the author Alan Hollinghurst has had his reader's awaiting this book. I would like to know what you think if you venture to read it.
William Gibson- My first read from his shelf of titles- Pattern Recognition. More about Gibson later this week.
I am definitely looking into the periods in English history before the first War and the aftermath and interim to the second War.
Imagine a horribly unprepared freshman sitting in a Philosophy of Religion class at the UNC- Chapel Hill-way over my head-but listening. That is important-sometimes it is not what one says-but how one listens. Turns out I established my personal philosophy from this noted Southern philosopher Maynard Adams. I can't wait to read this biography about the man that shaped my philosophy.
No--- not so much engaged in enlightenment.
the Return to- stack.
a satellite of the desk---of the office---
stories to write & research
& of course the to be paid files.
