What I'm Reading Right Now #37

Quote of the day: 

Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake. -Wallace Stevens

When the sun peeps behind excited clouds there is every reason to smile, to be self aware of how great life is, and there is even more reason to bask in the reflecting light. Sunshine ignites an invisible fire each and every time, with darkness turning to shadows.

Having said that, there is a never ending hunger and fire to read, and keep getting lost in the world of books. My current read, which is the third for the month is a book by author Anna Perera.

Although it is a work of fiction, it is inspired by real events. It tells the story of Khalid, a 15 year old British teen whose life is forever changed when he travels with his family to Pakistan. It is a very compelling read about one boy's innocence in a time of conflict, uncertainty and paranoia.

  1. Being a walker I like that quote. : )
    I'm reading a Louise Penny book and book 5 in the Outlander series.

  2. Dear Life by Alice Munro, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013- a book of short stories.

  3. EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED. I loved the movie so I thought I'd read the book.

  4. Your passion for books leaps off the screen!

  5. Ove quote! And if I wasn't so busy reading Little Green Goose (etc), I would probably be adding a very interesting book to my coment! Have a lovely day!

  6. Really interesting post...thx for sharing! xx

  7. As usual, I am parallel-reading. This time, the work of non-fiction is a physical book, "Vorstoß in den Weltraum" by Willy Ley. Mr. Ley was a rocket scientist who emigrated from Germany to the US in the 1930s because of the Nazis. He later became part of the rocket-building team around Wernher von Braun. He and his wife published many books, not only about rocket science, but about other topics, too.

    The fiction I am reading on my Kindle these days is a children's book from 1902.

  8. Hi Blogoratti - I'm ashamed every time I come here to see the books you're reading ... I do read loads .. but seemingly not those things called books! This does sound exceedingly informative - I've put it on my to buy list ... cheers Hilary

    1. H.M-B, I'm in the same camp. I used to read books much more, but now I'm an internet addict (and camera fiend, of course).

  9. Hello, great quote. The book sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing. Happy Sunday, enjoy your week ahead!

  10. Just started Tunnels by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams. It's a children's book, and it's slightly annoying in its oversimplification of various matters, but the story is cracking along well.

  11. You are an inspiration! I need to get lost in a book or ten. Love the quote too!


  12. It looks like a very powerful and emotional book. I'm reading "Pop Painting" by Camilla d'Errico, it's a tutorial book and quite enjoyable!

  13. Hello! I've seen some of your comments on my blog. Thanks for that.
    I'm not reading any book right now. I actually don't like reading but my man keeps encouraging me. Lol.
    Nice blog you got. Kiss.

  14. I've got 3 going...none of which are thrilling me.

  15. Good morning ...
    I do like the quote you've used today.
    Your book choice sounds a good one too.

    Hope this new week goes well for you.

    All the best Jan

  16. I am currently re reading the money book by Lanre Olushola
