I wasn‘t expecting this to be an excellent resource that I will use in my future classroom, but here we are...We covered Narration, Intertextuality, and Metaphoricity. Excellent class! I‘m so glad I took it! (Reading & Writing About Literature)

Just at the beginning of what will probably be my last #modernlibrarytop100 book of the year. I‘m finding the prose pretty hard to follow, but that may have something to do with Jacques distracting me as he investigates the thawing Christmas tree.

And David‘s Lips are lock‘t; but in divine
High piping Pehlevi, with „Wine! Wine! Wine!
Red wine!“ - the Nightingale cried to the Rose
That yellow Check of hers to incarnadine.

I have all this to read and or listen to before Dec 1 so that I can finish 4 reading challenges. I think I can do it. I‘m gonna try any way.

#weeklyforcast but for the month. @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Oh wow!!!! You had a GREAT WEEK!!! What didn‘t you like about 5h
TheEllieMo @Cinfhen I can‘t put my finger on it, to be honest. The writing was good, the stories were good (Dominique‘s in particular), but it all felt a little too relentless, I suppose. I may leave it a while and return and read each group of three stories over a longer period. 4h
Cinfhen Interesting/ I loved how all the stories came together but I get what you‘re saying. 4h
TheEllieMo @Cinfhen I liked how the stories connected, I was keeping track - “ah, so Carole‘s teacher Mrs King is Shirley, Amma‘s friend!” But I didn‘t like, or see much of a point, to the After Party chapter. I liked the epilogue, though 4h

Stern:: A Novel | Bruce Jay Friedman
Pickpick

The book that started my obsession with BJF. Maybe not as side-splitting as A Mother‘s Kisses, but still quite hilarious in its own right. Up there with Gentleman‘s Agreement on the subject of bigotry and anti-Semitism. This is one I wish I could read again fresh.
