It sounds like the start of a joke, but it’s just what I’ve been reading. As I mentioned last week, I am trying a new course with my reading, that is, reading a fiction and a nonfiction book instead of having several books out of the library at one time and potentially not reading any of them. My first books were, and are, Fer-de-lance, the first mystery featuring detective Nero Wolfe, by Rex Stout and The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Douglas Abrams.
I should clarify that I plan on alternating between fiction and nonfiction books, so to that end, I started with Fer-de-lance and will be reading The Book of Joy, beginning it later today. I read many of the Nero Wolfe novels years ago and I’m glad I’m delving back into them as I enjoyed this first one.
Earlier this week on the blog:
This coming week, I’ll be adding in a new category, What I’m doing otherwise, as I’ll be looking back at how I did on the goals for my Lenten journey.
So far, I don’t have a lot of views on the posts with the categories of what we’re watching and what we’re listening to, but that’s OK. I still want to keep a diary for myself on those topics and maybe someday others will stop in and read those posts. Of course, you’re welcome to stop by today too (and leave a comment if you do).
How was your week? Read anything good? Watch anything interesting? Listen to anything that you couldn’t hear enough of?
