Wednesday Reads

I’ve made a bit of progress after last week’s Wednesday Reads, but admittedly, not much. I’ve been blogging, I promise! But…just not for this blog. I helped develop a blog for our library patrons to follow throughout the summer, which I had to learn to use, then teach to others. And I put the finishing touches on the very detailed Summer Reading Program (SRP) teen volunteer blog, which is the format I use to put out the call for extra hours (for when teens go on vacation), or for program helpers.

So yes…back to my own blog.

http://www.amazon.com/TransAtlantic-A-Novel-Colum-McCann/dp/1400069599/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370554132&sr=8-1&keywords=transatlanticI have been waiting for this novel for a very long time! I first experienced a Colum McCann novel in November 2010, when I was a long-term substitute for the librarian at the Thurgood Marshall Academy Public Charter High School. McCann was a guest at the school, and I heard him (and his beautiful accent) discuss his novel Let the Great World Spin. Then I read Dancer and just about died from the fictional take on the very real Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev. I am so glad Transatlantic is here. Period.

And because it’s here…I am reading nothing else. New. Nothing else that is new. Because goodness knows I’m sloughing through TheTwelve. Cronin, you’re killing me.
