Summer library time…

I haven’t taken an opportunity to sit down and read at a public library in years. It’s nice to be back. Seven years ago I went back to uni to earn my M.A. in Cultural Anthropology and gave up fiction reading until I finished my thesis in 2008. Halfway through thesis writing I realized that I was filled with novel ideas. Not novel to academics, but novel writing. Only lately after a downsize and layoff at my non-profit job have I started following through with writing. I am reading Stolen Souls based in Belfast, the city where I conducted my M.A. research. I ended up spending an hour and a half of pure read time while hubby was in an interview for a librarian position. Image

  1. I saw a recent documentary on Ulysses. Was struck my the observation that no Irishman reads it because we already know whats in it. …..as Catholics never read the Bible cos they already know whats in it. Its one of those books that people tend to buy but never actually read. I have actually read it but not cover to cover. Its an episodic book and can be read in eoisodes.

    • Where I grew up they all read the Bible but the classics were pretty much overlooked. I find myself at a loss in finding the literary meanings within the episodes.
