Rogers cut me off for three days, completely, so I was incommunicado. I won't go into the detail I wrote into my whining Word piece - I actually wrote a blog on Word, intending to slip it into cobwebblog when I was back online but that document has disappeared. Just as well. I wasn't happy. Isn't it terrible how dependent we are now on that cable? I took the time to read a lot and that was a blessing. Two books, both recommended:
ALLTHE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE by Anthony Doerr. According to booksellers it's this year's Goldfinch, a runaway best-seller. I won't say anything about it, just that it's a page-turner and beautifully written.
STONER by John Williams. Actually published in 1965, it has flown under the radar till recently. It began to surface some time last spring. I read a few catchup reviews and I finally caught up with it. I bought both books with book gift coupons. This one is a classic novel, a quiet, clear story that could be depressing but somehow isn't.
As a writer I feel obligated to buy other writers' books rather than borrow them. They need the money. (So do I.) What have you been doing?
