ThoughtsLink: The Morning News Tournament of Books
I am bummed that Milkman is out. Bummer. And I was disappointed in the judge’s decision – seemed dismissive. Oh well. I am fine with a reasoned and balanced comparison but a ‘Hey – I didn’t like it’ for reasons that expressed a lack of trying or any appreciation didn’t sit well with me. A more gentle way to say the other book just had more appeal to personal taste is a fine argument, but I don’t think Milkman got that treatment.
I am thrilled that is ZOMBIE-ING! Not that excited The Overstory is as well.
And I just downloaded There There. I best read it; seems important. For some unknown unexplored reason, I have been avoiding it. (and yes, I do realize the week isn’t over – we’ll hear more about There There tomorrow…)
I am super excited to read The House of Broken Angels! And I go back and forth on attempting The Dictionary of Animal Languages. I really wasted February not reading these! UGH. Oh well.
OK, that’s my quick recap. And, as in every year. I’m very much enjoying the commentary.
It’s my favorite time of year!
