Quick Post

Read The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah.

I started it yesterday and finished it early this morning. Cried like a baby and never could go back to sleep.

In these days of Americans parading around as would-be Nazis and proudly proclaiming white supremacy we need books like The Nightingale to remind us of the horrors perpetrated by those who fought for Hitler’s Germany.

Never forget the atrocities.

  1. As you may know, young Leslie I am obsessed by the piece of history you mention here. I have waited many years for someone to better Simon Mawer’s The Glass Room. Have you guided me to a book that ends my wait? I’ll let you know. Thanks for posting this one. By the way, and changing the subject, I just found myself laughing as, reading your post I thought all of a sudden my eye condition was afflicting me again, then I realized in was only the falling ether snowflakes in the background!

    1. I have no idea why my page is doing that! And I don’t know how to make it stop! In addition I can’t even see it going on. I need to read The Glass Room. But I need a few days to process this book. I’m shattered.

      1. Funnily enough I’ve spotted a few more blogs with ether snowflakes. I’m guessing they might come with the chosen WP theme. They’re harmless enough Leslie, very seasonal. It was only that I almost went blind in my left eye a while back through an ever space consuming herd of eye ‘floaters’ and thought it was happening all over again…hence I laughed when I realised the screen had played tricks with me!

  2. Now if you where a fan of non-fiction, I would recommend Susan Neiman’s,” Evil In Modern Thought.” It’s a dense intellectual history, that provokes a conundrum… put simply… if one could codify, blueprint, and template, with absolute certainty, the necessary steps that lead one’s fellow humans to willfully participate collectively in such abject evil, would one be morally obligated to make those understandings publicly known, or morally obliged to forever keep that information secret? SNZ and I recently debated this question loudly, and for hours, as we fell on opposite sides of the dilemma.
