FF: Inspiration and Education

Ogapoge Strikes a Stylish Pose

I’ll be finishing my re-read of Silver on the Tree, the last of Susan Cooper’s “Dark Is Rising” series today or tomorrow.  I’ve enjoyed the re-read.  And there’s a bit in the book that just might be the subject of my WW this coming week.  We’ll need to see.

For those of you just discovering this part of my blog, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazines.

The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

Recently Completed:

Nothing except a few magazine articles,  but I have a good reason…

In Progress:

Silver on the Tree by Susan Cooper.

Our Oriental Heritage: The Story of Civilization by Will Durant.  Audio.  We’ve finished trying to define “civilization,” have taken a brief look at the Sumerians, and are into Egypt.  It’s fascinating to realize that when these books were written, Wooley was still excavating Ur and Tutankhamen’s tomb was a relatively new discovery.


As I mentioned last Wednesday, most of my reading time has been going to reviewing what I’ve written on the on-going Firekeeper novels, seven and eight, tentatively titled Wolf’s Search and Wolf’s Soul.  Not done yet!

    I am looking forward to the new Firekeeper books, so I am glad to hear you are progressing on those.

    Slow week for me, but no particular reason. I have not finished anything. My only new addition is Rogue Protocol (The Murderbot Diaries #3) by Martha Wells.

    I’ve read sooo many books while I was away from blogging any being ill. I won’t list them all. The one that really stood out was Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. As a Gen Xer , so much of the story was a trip through my school years. It had me laughing and exclaiming out loud. Great fun! I haven’t seen the movie and I’m not sure if I will. Movies are very rarely even half as good as the books.

      Welcome back! You’ve been missed. Meet Beverly (one post above), who loves books and as varied reads as you do! I liked Ready Player One the book, and I’m not a Gen Xer, so a lot of the references slipped by me. But I AM a gamer, and I got into it for that.

      Hope you feel well now…

      Hi. I have missed your posts! You have given me many good suggestions on what to read. I also enjoyed Ready Player One. I will probably watch the movie just because there aren’t many titles that interest me.
