I finished The Reader last night and pretty immediately went back to the good-times book I bought in Portland a few weeks ago. Fluffy, mindless reading was in high demand post a Nazi trial read. I’ll be posting on The Reader at the Book Blob later this week.
This is a week or so late, but I came across this article in my publishing-related reading. What do you think? I am really not a huge fan of zombies, so while it would probably make my hypothetical running workouts more interesting, I probably wouldn’t invest. But then I started brainstorming interactive literature-based programs that would make me want to buy them. Here’s a preliminary list:
• Harry Potter (DUHZ)
• Oliver Twist (you’ve got to run fast when you’re a pickpocket, everyone knows that)
• The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (if the adrenaline rush I got from just reading that was any indication)
• The Magicians (ditto)
• The Wolves Chronicles (because I’m a sucker for children’s lit/period novels/mysteries)
• Agatha Christie (because WOW excitement)
Oh dear. A girl can dream.
