The Sunday Salon: Around the World in 80 hours

The Sunday Since I'm still fairly incapacitated, hand-wise, this will be an ultra short SS post today. I'm getting lots of good reading done, on a bit of a global whirlwind:

  • Half of a Yellow Sun (Nigeria/Biafra)
  • Mudbound (US - Mississippi)
  • Weaving a Way Home (all over the map)
  • An Artist of the Floating World (Japan)
  • The Story of Lucy Gault (Ireland)
  • The World Without Us (Planet Earth, sans humans) - still reading
Hmm, where to next? Perhaps Italy -The Leopard - or Canada - The Blind Assassin - or maybe a trip Down Under - Oscar and Lucinda.

My actual right hand (the left one looks similar). No pretty maps, just pretty stitches and bruises.

I loved The Blind Assassin. After one third of the book, it is unputdownable!

I like your list!

I have Half of a Yellow Sun on my list for this summer - hope your hand heals up real quick. At least you can still read which is a good thing!

Irish said...

The Blind Assassin was a really good book.

Half the Yellow Sun is on my list of books to read as well. I hope to get to it soon.

I hope that your hands heal up soon so that you can get back to doing all the things that you love to do with ease.

I hope you'll be feeling better soon! You have a ton of great reading! I keep hearing lots about Mudbound, so I might have to check that one out. I can't wait to read The World Without Us, too.

I loved The Blind Assassin and Half of a Yellow Sun was good too. I haven't read the rest.

I hope your hands are healing well - happy reading.

Terri, I gave Mudbound 4.5 Stars too. Great book. Heal fast!

Lisa said...

Terri - thanks for visiting my SS post and for your comments. I'm not feeling guilty anymore! LOL Your list sounds fantastic! Apparently The Blind Assassin is a book I'm going to have to look in to based on the comments! Thanks for the rec! I hope your hands are healing and you get back to 100% soon.

The Leopard has been gathering dust here for too long.

Be well!

Lyza said...

Heal up and get some great reading done. You deserve it (the latter). :)

I'm glad to see that you are up and at it. Good luck with your recovery and reading.

Wow, I love that photo of the globe-map hands! I hope your own hands are healing well. And I hoped you liked Half of a Yellow Sun, which I loved.

Terri said...

Thanks Dewey! I'm making progress, I drove my car for the first time today. Still a bit tender.

I did love Half of a Yellow Sun! 5/5. Very well done book.
