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!
