It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? — 8 Comments

  1. I’m reading A Game of Thrones, continuing my plan to read fantasy while writing fantasy, and because there’s an HBO movie coming out. Downside, it’s a door stopper. Can’t seem to find the compromise between books too small and too big.

    I learned a little about the two large black migrations out of Dixie, one after each of the world wars, by studying blues music. Famous blues in the Mississippi delta moved north and morphed into even more famous Chicago electric blues. But less famous blues from Texas and Oklahoma went to southern California and influenced T-Bone Walker and John Lee Hooker, who influenced Keb’ Mo’. And the Georgia and Alabama folks brought their blues, infused with gospel harmony, up the eastern seaboard where in the ’50s it became doo-wap.

  2. I’ve read reviews for this before and I never noticed the parallels between this and Will Grayson Will Grayson. When I finish clearing my shelves I will have to give this a try.
