A Reading Vocation

"I Must Read, Read, and Read. It is my Vocation." - Thomas Merton

This is where I chronicle my reading life.  I also blog about writing at Lacey's Late-night Editing.


New Book Arrivals

My Cat Saved My Life - Phillip Schreibman Plover Landing - Marie Zhuikov Making a Literary Life - Carolyn See Dark Eden - Chris Beckett

My husband and I have been swamped with a big work project this weekend, so with both our laptops and our four feet (at various intervals) attempting to share our small coffee table, along with an occasional attempt by the cat to also share said table, I figured I should announce my new book arrivals and tuck them safely away. The coffee table where I usually hold new books for "processing" has become a dangerous place indeed!


Dark Eden by Chris Beckett - This is one of those books I put on my wishlist and now do not remember why or where I learned of it. I have to trust myself of the past for having a good reason! It's a dystopia.


Plover Landing by Marie Zhuikov - My friend Marie's second book, sequel to Eye of the Wolf.


My Cat Saved My Life by Phillip Schreibman - Referenced in Soul Comfort for Cat Lovers, this is the book my heart really wants to read right now, and makes me feel that I won't have to make Soul Comfort last quite as long.


Making a Literary Life by Carolyn See - I found out about this book through an interview with Lisa See in Writer's Digest.
