Who’s Reading What: May 2010

27 May, 2010

I can’t believe it’s been 5 months since I asked the people around me what they are reading. Where has the time gone? A question I ask myself daily.

This month I’m asking my family what they are reading and you’ll find an interesting selection below:

Yes, Please. Thanks!: Teaching Children of All Ages Manners, Respect and Social Skills for Life by Penny Palmano – for the good parent
What’s a Disorganized Person to Do? by Stacey Platt – for the organiser in you
Mr. Good (Mr. Men Classic Library) by Roger Hargreaves – for the little person
The Horse Prince by Lisa Thompson – for the not so little person
Shobogenzo: Zen Essays by Dogen translated by Thomas Cleary – for the contemplative
The Life of Hunger by Amélie Nothomb – for the Francophile
and the all important World Cup Magazine – for the footie-mad

Mmm, looks like my nephews, my dad and I are the only fiction readers at the moment…

      Nothomb in a superstar in the Francophone world. Life of Hunger is autobiographical fiction. I’ve only read a part of it, but it was pretty interesting.

    I am reading The Tin Drum, by Gunter Graas

  3. Eva Says:

    The Life of Hunger sounds awesome! My sister and I loved the Mr. Men and Little Miss books when we were younger. 🙂

  4. Iris Says:

    Like Eva, my sister and I really enjoyed tha Mr. Men series. I come across them every once in a while and always feel the urge to buy them (haven’t given in to it yet).

    I love the cover of The Life of Hunger. I’m also curious about Shobogenzo.

      The cover is gorgeous isn’t it? It’s a pretty interesting read (autobiographical) but I’ve I’ve only read half of it. Shobogenzo is apparently very difficult so it’s probably best to start with a simple introduction.
