Booklist Changes (when will it end?)

Friday, June 08, 2007
I've had to remove Aurel Stein: Pioneer of the Silk Road from the summer reading list. Seems I've already read it. I think I can be forgiven though as it was for a paper in university on Stein that I did about ... oh god ... 10 years ago (where has the time gone?). I found the man and his work to be quite fascinating - if you can get your hands on a biography or even one of his own books, I'd recommend it (not necessarily this one though). I think, if I have the time this summer, I might check out Susan Whitfield's Aurel Stein on the Silk Road or Stein's own On Alexander's Track to the Indus. Therefore I've replaced it with Into Africa: The Epic Adventures of Stanley and Livingstone which was on my original list (I caved and bought a copy a little while ago).

What's everyone else reading right now?

I just started The Golden Compass. So far it's OK.

I really want to read Life Along the Silk Road by Susan Whitfield. Have you heard of it?

I've just started Unless. And so far it's reminded my why I love Carol Shields' writing.

Barbara: Unless is excellent. I'm a huge fan of Shields, and my favourite of hers is The Republic of Love.
