MONDAY POTPOURRI: MUSINGS — AUGUST 27

Welcome to another Monday Potpourri, with today’s feature being Musing Mondays, by Should Be Reading.

This week’s musing — courtesy of http://lustforstories.blogspot.com– asks…

What is the weirdest/strangest/craziest book you’ve read?

I thought of a few possibilities, but here’s one I came up with after perusing my lists:

Digging Out, by Anne Richardson (Roiphe) (click title for review)

I entitled my review “A Savage Exploration,” because the images that came to mind as I read were “savage”and “cold.”  And I could even imagine a kind of “emotional excavation.” I have enjoyed several books by this author, but was so disappointed by this 1966 tome, that I couldn’t wait to finish it.

In probing my other weird experiences with books, I think of another one that felt really strange to me:  A Visit from the Goon Squad, by Jennifer Egan.  I know lots of people enjoyed this one, and I liked parts of it.  I especially didn’t like the Power Point chapter.

I couldn’t find a link to my review, which means I probably read and reviewed it before I was tracking my reviews.  One of the downsides to having lots of blogs!

What about the rest of you?  What did you come up with?

    • Ha-ha….there is a story there. I just love creating, designing them, and changing them around. At one point, I had twenty (I had one for each of the books I wrote, for starters). Now I only have 12. And yes, crazy. But fun. Not for everyone.

      Thanks for stopping by, Caite.

  2. Hi! Thanks for dropping by my blog!

    Great answer! I don’t really keep up with modern lit so I can’t say what the fuss was all about but A Visit from the Goon Squad seemed to be a favourite among many.
