reading

I'm in the middle of Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton, and Myths to Live By, How we re-create ancient legends in our daily lives to release human potential, by Joseph Campbell. Notice, that in contrast, I stayed up into the wee hours of the night, in a couple of sittings, finished Ann-Marie MacDonald's novel Fall On Your Knees.

Novels consume me. I can't put them down. I find reading other types of books is much easier on me. I can dawdle. I can mull them over. Not with novels. I can't take my time with novels. I'm obsessed with finding out what happens next, how it all ends!

I read Fall on Your Knees last summer, and was completely absorbed by it as well. What a compelling story, and a compelling writer.

Have you read
Clara Callan
, by Richard Wright? I read this book last summer as well, and absolutely fell in love with it. Wright is a Canadian author, and the book is set in Depression-era Ontario. I highly recommend it.
