The 2011 Global Reading Challenge
What a challenging way to begin the New Year! I found the Global Reading Challenge accidently, and am looking forward to posting the books I read and discussing them with the other bloggers on the web site. I am also interested in the writing aspect of these books. As a lover of words, or "just the right word" as Mark Twain said, I will be looking for those magical sentences that either transport me to another place or are so powerful that I remember them. An example: Pablo Neruda's poem, "Tonight I Can Write the saddest lines" and the line ..."I loved her and sometimes she loved me too." Sometimes says it all.
