Hello boys and girls. How are things?
This week was very different from last week reading-wise. I flew through my books last week, but this week was very slow. I know that the issue was with the books I picked to read. The first is a very interesting look at how spelling evolved in English writing, but it's not exactly a page-turner. The second was a novel about a woman living under the oppression of China's One Child policy. It was horribly tragic and it's been a while since I've had to convince myself to keep reading a book. Both are good books, but you need to take them slowly so you can take in all the information in the first and truly experience the magnitude of the horror of the second. We will see how reading goes this week!
