The Sunday 

I am very slow with completing books this semester  SUMMER, so I thought that it would be fun to have a progress report of my reading.  This is an online reading group where all the participants set aside time to read every Sunday and blog about the experience.

These two weeks I continued reading Remembering Babylon by David Malouf . I had just begun this book the last time I had posted to the Sunday Salon.  Last Sunday, I could not summon the energy to post on Sunday, so I decided to wait.  I am almost 40% through the book and I am getting a better sense of things.  The story is multi-layered.  One of the things I enjoy is that each chapter is told from a different characters perspective.  This technique makes me understand how each person ended up where they are now and how their past informs the way they are behaving in the present. 

This is one of my selections for two challenges:

The Neustadt  Challenge

Orbis Teeravm Challenge
