I’m participating in Calapidder Days’ Spring Reading Thing, and it’s done a great job of getting me reading! (Well, that and the fact that my MOMs Club is discussing one of the books from my list this month).
I just finished reading The Memory Keeper’s Daughter last night, and I highly recommend it. It deals with delicate concerns about Downs Syndrome, guilt and redemption, how shooting photographs somehow objectifies life and separates us from what we’re trying to capture… Dreams and growing older, finding contentment, and how a parent’s mistakes visit their children. It gives you lots to think about, and weaves a great story revolving around a family and their history.
Anyhow, now I’m thinking that I just might finish all the books I set out to read – I think I have until early September to do it.
