Friday Blog Hop by Crazy for Books
Another Friday, another blog hope sponsored by Crazy for Books. Book blogger hops are designed to introduce and network book bloggers from around the web. Whether or not you are a blogger, you can follow the link below, read what other bloggers have written, and find new blogs to check out. Who knows, maybe it will inspire you to do your own book blog?
This week’s question is: “Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”
Given my pledge to severely limit my acquisition of new books, this one is tough. So, I’ll cheat a bit and talk about a Kindle sample I got – Marcel Proust: A Life by Edmund White.
I plan to spend some time on this blog, after my Bowen and Cather stints are done, blogging about reading Proust and to try my darnedest to show you why Proust is a really wonderful writer – not deserving of his reputation as only interesting to highbrow readers working on a literary theory dissertation. I have the sense that this biography will fit the bill of being interesting, lively, not a long, long tome, and a nice complement to reading Remembrance of Time Past.
So, that’s the one I “got” this week that I’m most looking forward to reading.
What’s in your TBR (to be read) pile that you are dying to read?
Happy Reading, Ruby
