With the October Memoir Challenge, Dewey’s Read-a-Thon, and the more usual things that go on my blog, it’s been a full week.
Here are the memoir entries of the last week, in order:
My Saturday Snapshot post was kind of related to the memoir posts, because I went to my hometown on Friday, for the first time in six years, and took photographs, taking advantage of some beautiful autumn light: A River Town — Saturday Snapshots.
My participation in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon was limited, but I managed a few posts: the sign up, Dewey’s Read-a-Thon, the introduction, Introductory Questionnaire for Dewey’s Read-a-Thon, and the finale, Dewey’s Read-a-Thon End of Event.
There were two posts about food this week. One described the salad I made from garden thinnings: Baby Kale. The other was my Weekend Cooking post with an autumn bread recipe: Pumpkin (Winter Squash) Yeast Bread — Weekend Cooking.
I learned the word sapper for Wondrous Words Wednesday.
We had a good time with Readers’ Workouts last week: Readers’ Workouts — October 9. Join us tomorrow!
During Dewey’s Read-a-Thon I finished The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl by Shauna Reid. Fun book! I’ll put up a review as a Weekend Cooking post at some point.
In my King Lear project, I finished William Shakespeare’s King Lear: a graphic novel by Gareth Hinds and the “King Lear” section of Tales from Shakespeare by Charles Lamb and Mary Lamb.
I had several versions of King Lear checked out of the library. The Oxford School Shakespeare version turned out to be the most accessible with a wide format, lots of summary materials and notes. There are even illustrations!
I’m working on a marketing project for around the first of the year, so I’m reading the book Content Rules: How to Create Killer Blogs, Podcasts, Videos, Ebooks, Webinars (and More) that Engage Customers and Ignite Your Business by Ann Handley and C.C. Chapman. Lots of ideas are flying through my brain!
It’s Monday! What Are Your Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Be sure to check out her post today to see her selections and the list of links to all the other participating bloggers.
