The Sunday Salon #62: Geometry of God and the Thirteenth Tale

The Sunday Salon.com

Even though I am very slow with completing books,  I thought it would be fun to track my reading progress each week. The Sunday Salon is  an online reading group where all the participants set aside time to read every Sunday and blog about the experience. To learn more or to join, click on the picture above.

Since my last salon post, I haved moved to DC to start my fellowship.  It has been an exciting, but exhausting adjustment. You can read more about the transition here.   As a result of my moving and settling in adventures, my reading time has been pretty limited.  Right before I left MA, I stayed up late to finish an INCREDIBLE, AMAZING, THOUGHT PROVOKING book! Geometry of God by Uzma Aslam Khan is truly one of the best books I have read in a long time.  I wish that I could capture all of insights I had while I was reading and all the ways I have been thinking about it since I finished into a review; however, all I could produce is something that is filled with exclamation points and grand statements. You can find my review here.

After a few weeks, I finally started another book.  My dear friend Sonja's older sister, Karen, blogger of Planet Books, lives in the area.  She graciously allowed me to join her book club.  I am really looking forward to spending time with her and to be part of a reading group again.  To prepare for the meeting, I started reading The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I am only about a quarter of the way through, but I really love one of the main characters. Her description of reading and the ways in which books can carry you away really resonates with me.

GT: reading slumps are the worst!

I'm looking foward to seeing you again on Sunday. I finally started reading The 13th Tale for real. I am pretty pleased and believe I probably started reading it when it first came out and just wasn't in the "right place" to read it then. Therefore I thought I wouldn't like it. Thanks for gently pushing me to read as much as I can before our meeting this weekend. I'll do my best to get most, if not all read.

Woo hoo Karen! I really hope that you enjoy the book as I much as I am; I feel like the book is a love letter to readers everywhere. I know that sounds dramatic, but I cannot think of another description :)
