Weekly Reads: 5.12.14

I’m furiously reading The Gondola Maker by Laura Morelli, historical fiction set in Venice. Morelli holds a Ph.D. in art history from Yale; it’s obvious in the book that she knows her stuff.

The Gondola Maker by Laura Morelli is historical fiction set in Venice on this week's Weekly Reads.

Check back on Wednesday for a review of this book!

March is supposed to come in like a lion weather wise, but I’ve been so busy this month, that I’ve decided the statement applies to my calendar and to do list for the beginning of April as well.

During my lunch break, which I haven’t officially taken for two weeks, I‘m reading

The B2B Social Media Book
By Kipp Bodnar & Jeffrey L. Cohen

This book has a lot of great insights for the BSB social media market that I am.

I finished Steve Martin’s An Object of Beauty over the weekend. I absolutely loved it. It was so weird, but so great. I picked up

I think I finished about a book and a half in March. A little slow, but I enjoyed what I was reading.

Last week I started two books. During my lunch break I‘m reading

I’m trying to focus a little on creativity this year. This book has been on my to read shelf on Goodreads for years. I’m glad I’m finally reading it!

Things Fall Apart
By Chinua Achebe

It’s really good, though. Does that sound like a ringing endorsement to you?

I will start reading Nancy Mitford next. I supposed that sounds super white now, but don’t worry. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my reading for this month’s series, and I will definitely be exploring more black authors and reading more of Edwidge Danticat’s work in the future!

I did it! I finished Beloved. It wasn’t easy, but I did enjoy my time reading it. It’s an intricate book with a complicated story, but it’s one worth reading.

Up this week is another book I’m reading in anticipation of my Exploring Black History Through Literature series next week

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe | Weekly Reads at The 1000th Voice

Things Fall Apart
By Chinua Achebe

So far, I’m also enjoying this book, but I’m probably not going to be able to read it quickly. I have to read the pages a little slower than usual to grasp the intricacies of Achebe’s words.

I feel like this is a place where I can be honest. So here it is, I failed. It’s just so complex. (The book, not my excuse.)

And that means this week I’ll still be reading

Beloved
By Toni Morrison

I am pushing myself to read this, but that’s OK. Sometimes I have to push myself to experience new things. I don’t just read for entertainment. I read to experience and learn new things.

What are you planning to read this week? I hope you enjoy it!
