** I’m not sure why this didn’t post last week, I guess better late than never **
For something a little different I thought I would do a journal type entry on here every week to discuss the reading and book type things that I’ve done throughout the week. This is mostly done to try and help me keep up with the reading that was lacking at the end of 2008, most due to health reasons. So with a new year come new things.
This first week brought the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 so there was a lot of celebrating going on. But I also had plenty of opportunities to read. And with this opportunity I started reading Michael Chabon’s The Yiddish Policemen’s Union. Which has been enjoyable so far. I find the amount of Yiddish make the reading a little cumbersome at times and makes the book a little reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.
When I get back to work I should have a copy of Ragtime waiting for me for the new book club at work. As I’ve mentioned over and over on this site I love Ragtime and it’s my selection for the book club. As a result I’m sure I’ll devour this book in a couple days. This week should have some exciting things going on.
Until next time grab that book and read away. All the best for ’09.
