An Update

Just wanted to drop in and apologize for the dearth of episodes the last few weeks.  I had quite a bit going on this month – from a family member’s graduation to vacation – and it turned out to be too much to juggle with the podcast. 

The good news is, this week everything is fairly back to normal, so there will be an episode this coming Monday, all about classics for summer reading.  The following week, I’ll discuss one of the best books I’ve read this year, The Sea and Poison by Shusaku Endo.

If either of those interest you, stay tuned. I have a ton of ideas for the remainder of Season 2 and am excited to share them with you!

Bookshelf Tour! – Vlog – Part 1

In this first episode, I’ll be going through some books on my physical to-read (and to-reread!) shelf. There’s all kinds of classics here, from Jane Eyre and The Count of Monte Cristo, to Emily Dickinson and William Faulkner. Also present are a few history books and fiction based on historical events. Enjoy, and let me know if you’ve read any of these!

P. S. Sorry for the shaky video and abrupt transitions (didn’t know there was a fifteen minute cutoff…it was better before the final edit, alas). Next time methinks I’ll get a tripod.
