Oh, Yeah, That’s Why I Like Reading
If you read this blog (there are a small few of you), you know I’m working on James Michener’s Hawaii. Once I got past the section on the missionaries and am now in the section focusing on the Chinese immigrants, I am totally caught up. The word pictures Michener weaves!
At lunch I was reading about the leper colony in Hawaii in the late 1800’s. The lawlessness is unbelievable in my world, yet believable when realizing what those people were facing.
I’m half way through the book and have two weeks to go. Despite the fact that it’s over 900 pages and the font is really small I’m sure I’ll get it done before my book club meets.
