Another Fun Monday has arrived and this week it is being hosted by The Lurchers.
This week's assignment is: firstly tell me what book you are reading now. What's it about? Are you enjoying it and why? If not, why not?
And secondly, if you were to be stranded on a desert island, what one book would you take with you.
First: one of the books I'm currently reading is Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit by Daniel Quinn.
I'm still early into it but it's about an unusual teacher and the wisdom he has to pass on to others, specifically one student he advertises to have. It's very deep but interesting. I am enjoying it though I had started it once last summer, and then bailed. I found it again after talking with someone who had read the follow-up books and loved those.
Second: This is a very tough question. The seminarian in me says I should bring the Bible. But the secular girl in me wants to bring The Brothers K by David James Duncan. I don't know that there is really one book that could surpass it all.
