Turning Pages

A few days ago, I was walking to the bus stop near my home and I passed by one the houses nearby and took a look in the Little Free Library that was by the sidewalk. Normally, there isn’t a lot in there that will interest me; earlier in the summer, I managed to snag a poetry book. Last year, I grabbed a copy of Raptor Red because, well, it’s something I’ve been wanting to read.

This time, I spotted something that I had to grab: When the Emperor was Divine. The title was enough to give me pause and once I read the jacket, I knew I had to take this one.

This is dealing with the interment of Japanese Americans during the Second World War. Yeah, a must read for yours truly.

I’ll probably start up on this one after I get done with my read through of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and a take down of Doreen Virtue’s Healing with the Angels. Once I’m done with the second one, I’m dropping it in the Little Free Library, as I have no use for the darned thing and I don’t even know where I got it.

Yeah, I went through a bit of a metaphysical phase. I have plenty of books that I can drop off at that Library. I just need to scare ’em up and start dropping ’em off. All they’re doing is taking up space here.

So those are a few things you can look forward to in the coming weeks. I may write up a small review for my latest pull–this book is only five chapters long–but it’ll be pretty brief. As for the C.S. Lewis book? That’s a reread, as I loved it as a kid but I’m wondering if that same love will hold up now that I’m older.

The love isn’t as strong now, I hate to admit. If anything, the characters are coming across as rather bland and the dialogue is downright clunky. It’s more than a little sad, when I think about it.

But once I’m done with that, I’ll move on to greener pastures. Can’t wait to see you guys then!

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
