I'm Supposed To Be...

writing about Sula and I am but, my litcritsh*t is still not finished.  I will tell everybody about this struggle when I get finished with it. 

In the meanwhile, I keep going to the library or bookstores and giving into passionate temptation.  This week I found The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta.  Okay, I went looking for it because I heard him being interviewed on the radio, and even though I have never read about the rapture or any Tom Perrotta books, this book did sound interesting.

Then Chris Abani pulled my attention to the South African writer, artist, and activist Bretyen Breytenbach through one of the poems he wrote.  Click here to read.  Until I read the poem, I had never heard of him.  I "found" the book Return To Paradise in which Breytenbach writes about his imprisonment during aparthied in South Africa.  I don't know if I can handle reading about such a nightmare, but I will check it out. 

 Also, I've been meaning to read something by Tamora Pierce, so I got Tortall and Other Tales because I enjoy fantasy and history.  In addition I have to read the rest of the books on my to be read list.  Wish me luck and time.
