New Reading Possibilities

imgres.jpgI’m off visiting my daughter and granddaughter in Florida with limited tools to do ACOR justice, but I’ll try. Luckily  worked on my monthly reading pool and have several of the selections on my iPhone.

I still have to figure out how to cut and paste and update my Acive Reading page, but for now this post is my December reading list.

  1. I wanted to read something by Reza Aslan, but I cannot find it here in Mexico, and my PO box has some problems, so I switch to my first try at Faulkner: As I Lay Dying. It started with some difficulties, but I think I´m beginning to get the flavor. Lets see how it goes.


    1. Light In August is a good Faulkner to start with as is As I Lay Dying … But pay attention to who is narrating. Later on try The Sound and the Fury. The best (for me) is Absalom, Absalom!

      Nowadays I get most all of my reading in digital form, mostly to boost the print so I can read it, but thinking of your problem getting books might also be overcome downloading eBooks. I use an iPad and iPhone as readers but your computer works as well, only less portable.
