FF: Differently Dynamic

Persephone Says: She Stole My Autobiography Title!

My current reading is full of differently dynamic characters, just the inspiration I need to get me through my insanely busy schedule.

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:

Witchmark by C.L. Polk.

 In Progress:

Fearless Girls, Wise Women, and Beloved Sisters: Heroines in Folktales From Around the World compiled by Kathleen Ragan.  I chanced on this and plan to give it a shot with a few stories a day.  Tantalized by the multi-culturalism and that the compiler sought overlooked tales.

Me: Stories of My Life by Katharine Hepburn.  I read this many years ago, and am enjoying again.  Kudos to reader Bernadette Dunne who does such a phenomenal “Katharine Hepburn” voice that Jim went and picked up the box to make certain Hepburn herself wasn’t reading it.

Also:

I’ve temporarily put on hold The Age of Faith by Will Durant.  Part Four of “The Story of Civilization.”  Audiobook.  Discussing the evolution of the early church into the medieval church, as well as the fading out of non-Christian religions and how their traditions persisted.

    I finally finished Great North Road by Peter F. Hamilton, at 948 pages! About 500 of those could have (should have) been cut out. At about page 910, the author decided he needed to end so there was a questions answered, conflicts resolved, and all lived happily ever after ending. Ironic that Wednesday’s Wandering was about conclusions. I love this author, but this is not a book I would recommend.

    I also read Me years ago, maybe I should have another looksee while I’m waiting for my turn on the library list for the two books you suggested.
