Whatcha Reading? Wednesday on Thursday

| | Comments (3)

....because it seemed inappropriate for yesterday.

I finished The Memory Keeper's Daughter, which was pretty good. I thought it dragged and was not as "mesmerized" as the blurbs on the cover thought I should be. It was worth the read, and it will engender good discussion at book club, though.

So, now that that's done, I am in the middle of Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. I feel some sympathy for the young man, Chris McCandless, but at the same time I have the same feeling I had when watching Grizzly Man. "What on EARTH did you EXPECT?"

I have also started reading Letters to Malcolm, Chiefly on Prayer by C. S. Lewis. Excellent. I'll be sharing some snippets later.


If you're enjoying Krakauer's style, and if you haven't already, you may want to read "Into Thin Air" next. Several years ago we were given a copy of the audiobook (read by Krakauer) and it is phenomenal...an amazing story, told beautifully. If it was on CDs instead of cassettes, I'd load it onto my iPod and listen to it again. ;)

Is not this the perfect bookcase?


Julie, I read Into Thin Air a couple of years ago, after my son read it and thrust it into my hands. Very good.

Airedale! I need that!!!!!
