On My Wishlist: May 28, 2011: 05/27/11
Now I'm reading Rebecca's World by Terry Nation. It's one of those books I don't remember adding to my wishlist but I do enjoy other things Terry Nation has written so I'm sure I'll like this book.
Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):
The Featured Wish for May 28, 2010:
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (Recommended by Ms Spinks of The Notorious Spinks Talks Books)
This book has been on my mind for a while but I hadn't taken the effort to add it to my wishilst. I changed my mind after interviewing Ms. Spinks this week during Armchair BEA.

You're so lucky who got to be at BEA! (jealous!)
Comment #2: Saturday, May 28, 2011 at 19:08:12
No... I didn't go to BEA. I did Armchair BEA, a completely virtual thing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your choice sounds rather interesting, though I've never actually heard of Zora Neale Hurston before.
PS: I suppose it will, but then again, I am a rather patient person. I don't have to have books as soon as I see them! So I think I'll be ok! I'm guessing you're talking from experience?

I can't remember when exactly I had heard of Hurston's books but my Armchair BEA interview with Ms Spinks inspired me to add the book to my wishlist. Since I started participating in the meme I decided it was time to actually try to read books off the list instead of just letting it balloon. I've read 50 books so far (and added about 400 books).

Interesting choice. I have read her African American folktale collection "Mules and Men" which was good. I have heard this book is amazing though.

I'm pretty sure I haven't read any of her books yet.

I haven't heard of one of these books, but now I must go investigate. Their Eyes Were Watching God sounds a bit periodic like a Gone With the Wind type of book.

Their Eyes Were Watching God was published the year after Gone with the Wind.

I've been wanting to read Nation for sometime now. I hope that you enjoy it!

I've read other Terry Nation novels and enjoyed them. I just haven't read this one but it looks good.
