i flew out to Boston yesterday morning with a last minute ticket. it was probably the best flight i have ever had in my life.
i applied for a job on tuesday, got a call back the same day. just had my phone interview and i think it went really well.
Library haul: was in the mood for some VERY lite reading, so I picked up “His Significant Other” because of @ladyeic’s review (cute, funny, chick lit); “It’s Not You” because of @joymarilie’s review (I dont normally read relationship books but 2 chapters in and this one is already the most sensible and realistic I’ve ever read); and “Bedrock Faith”, a funny novel about church folk that has been on my list to read for a while.
Also picked up “An Untamed State”. Everyone has been raving about its goodness but it also sounds extremely disturbing (a woman is kidnapped and repeatedly tortured in Haiti and her family wont pay the ransom for her freedom). Saving that for last. (at Alameda Free Library)
Re-reading “Americanah” for @booktini’s International Setting month, and I’m trying not to be perturbed at the non-American editions having much better covers than the plain, reminiscent-of-a-paper-bag American edition (upper right).
Why you treat us like that, Chimamanda? 😐😕👎 #IJudgeBooksByTheirCovers
Last night =so much fun. #theforeignexchange (at The New Parish)
#14 “Forty Acres: A Thriller” by Dwayne Alexander Smith (@bookTini’s July Selection) - a group of wealthy elite Black businessmen create a secret society of slave masters, kidnapping white folks and keeping them in bondage. When up and coming lawyer, Martin Grey, is asked to join them, it’s either do it or die.
Never thought a book like this would pop up on the literary scene. Just a few chapters in. So far so good. Meeting to discuss this Sunday.
#TBT While planning @booktini’s first retreat back in November 2009, I’d stumbled upon a @lookingflyonadime blog post about making DIY earrings out of your fav album covers, and thought making them out of memorable book covers would be a great keepsake for our retreat goody bags. Me @trueiimyself @sagiluv21 and @HappilyNappyMe spent hours making enough for everyone to have two pair.
Totally forgot about these until I found them at my mom’s house this weekend. “BookTini needs an historian, so I’ll do that for you since you lose stuff a lot.” Lol She knows me so well. Glad she kept these (and everything else) for me. Missing are The Women of Brewster Place, Waiting to Exhale, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and the alternate The Color Purple cover earrings. #bookclubs #readinggroups #FiveYears
