Be fabulous like this peacock. Monday need not be rainy and dreary! (In other news, Monday is rainy and dreary. The female’s knee is majorly ouchy, and we won’t talk about her case of tennis elbow.
Life hurts right now. It’ll be better later… after the Motrin kicks in.
The female is in the final stages of proofreading The Run Around. Hooray! For a rare change, the print editions might be ready at the same time as the digital version. We shall see! I mean, you may have difficulties ordering copies due to current events, but at least they’ll be ready for sale.
The female is on a tight schedule for Grave Humor, but she’s almost done. Fortunately.
(Outside, a horrible grinding sound can be heard.)
Well, ain’t that just delightful!
We’re doing well. We’re posting daily to the new frequent sending mailing list, in which we’re silly and have a good time. Very little book marketing, some mentions of what the female is working on, pictures of kitties and peacocks. (This is the same peacock from this morning’s email.)
Before the female reclaims the computer and returns to work, we have a book review for today!
Brave New World is quite possibly the only book the female enjoyed from her short time in college. The ending is, in a word, haunting. The whole book is fairly haunting, truth be told.
We don’t want to spoil, but if you have to pick something that might be called a classic, we would gesture to this book for more reasons than we have claws. The other classic she would invite you to read would be Night by Elie Wiesel, because some things should never be forgotten.
These are difficult books for different reasons, but they are worthwhile books.
Should you choose to read Night, come armed with tissues. it is an emotional rollercoaster. Well, it was for her.
Like with Brave New World, some of that book will likely stick with you and leave its mark, one that cannot be erased but should be carried as a reminder of the atrocities humans are capable of.
It is a humbling experience, and may it remind you of everything you have.
We would say happy reading, but these two books… are hard. But you can, perhaps, find happiness because of them, as they are excellent reminders of what it means to be human.
