Oh dear. Nothing.
I started books, but I finished nothing.
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton (168 pages)
At the Back of the North Wind by George MacDonald (326 pages)
The Doll's House by Rumer Godden (180 pages)
Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson (280 pages)
The Nonexistent Knight by Italo Calvino (146 pages)
One Thousand and One Arabian Nights (325 pages)
What's this about, you may ask? Why are you reading six books? And all of them some sort of classic?
It's the Classic Club Spin for May. Typically, one makes a list of twenty books from one's Classics Club list that you might like to read. The Classics Club spins the wheel and a number pops up. That is the book you are to read.
But I decided to do something crazy. I only have six books left on my list. I decided to go ahead and try to READ ALL SIX BOOKS IN MAY.
Yes, that is a grand total of 1,425 pages. But I'm already neck deep in several of the books. I think I can do it. I will at least give it the All-American Try.
I wrote three posts last week:
Don't worry if you don't hear from me right away this weekend....I'm volunteering for three days this weekend at the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory's Spring Fling at Quintana Beach and the 25th Annual Migration Celebration at the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge. I'll be posting birds sited at the bird observatory and I'll be painting animal faces on children at the wildlife refuge. I promise to get back with you as soon as I can!
Update: Here are some of the fifty faces I painted on Saturday. Wish me luck as I return to paint more faces Sunday!
I hope each of you will stop by Readerbuzz each weekend and post a link to your blog. I would encourage you to visit other blogs and share your thought with others. The Sunday Salon was created twelve years ago to spark conversations. I hope to host a Sunday Salon each week with opportunities for conversations about books and book-ish things.
