Will any of these get read? Only the Shadow knows.


  1. I finished the Karen Russell; if you skip a couple few in the middle of the book, you might like a couple toward the end. I liked the title story, and the one about the giant conches (sorry, at work, can’t remember title)

    The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits! Cool.

  2. I’ve read almost all of Lucy Cousins works. Very upbeat and a good quick read. You can skip the middle of those as well – as long as nobody’s looking.

  3. I read a story in Zoetrope by Karen Russell about a year ago, which was set in the Everglades. I liked the atmosphere of the story a lot. I tried to tackle the Whale this summer, by both book and CD, and yet, still, the venture failed. The story is fascinating, but the sections of the types of whales, harpoons, boats, etc., get a bit weary. I’d try it again, though.
