Thanks to a recent WordPress Daily Prompt for today’s post:
Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.
(1) SAGA SATURDAY I
This post was my introduction to AbbieLu’s site Cafe Book Bean. In this post she defines what a saga is, then lists some of her favorite ones:
- Gone with the Wind
- Far and Away
- East of Eden
- The Thorn Birds
This post made me want to turn to my TBR shelves and grab a huge book to sink into. (Alas, I’ll have to wait until after January 1st to so indulge myself.) Overall, I love AbbieLu’s enthusiasm about books.
(2) #48: The Kings of Crime – II: Jim Thompson, the King of Clubs
On The Invisible Event, an unnamed Invisible Blogger writes about classic crime fiction.
This post particularly attracted me because one of the many books on my TBR shelves is Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me. That book, and hence this blog post as well, are good fits for my interest in Literature & Psychology.
(3) ALL YOU ZOMBIES, ROBERT HEINLEIN
I loved finding this blog post by Marilyn Armstrong because it, too, relates to Literature & Psychology. Like Marilyn, I find the concept of time travel fascinating, and I did not know about the book she discusses here, Robert A. Heinlein’s All You Zombies.
I hope I’ll be able to find a copy of this book!
