Instead of giving you a million posts in one day, I’ll just make this one a little longer than usual. I ended up finishing Savvy by Ingrid Law hours after I wrote day two’s summary. I took the book to bed with me and stayed up until the last page was read. With three kids I’m strict about getting every hour of sleep that I can get, so it’s the ultimate compliment.
Yesterday I didn’t read anything. Instead I spent the day hunting through new and used bookstores for great finds. Unfortunately I didn’t find even one book, something that rarely happens to me. Maybe next time . . .
Today I read Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. I’ll review it later this week, but for now: it’s a great read.
At my visit to the library in between readings of Stargirl, I picked up more books, ignoring what’s already on my bookshelf.
Classics for Pleasure by Michael Dirda. A collection of essays about Dirda’s favorite classics.
Great Books by David Denby. A memoir about Denby’s year at Columbia University as an adult, rediscovering the classics all over again.
An Exact Replica of a Figment of my Imagination by Elizabeth McCracken
