This looks like a fun game. I may have to pop over and join it myself.

I totally think you should read Twilight for your second choice. It's such a quick read, you could polish it off in a weekend.

Hey, thanks for the tip! Is that the book that led to the movie everyone's talking about? With a vampire?

The Twilight series of books is a lot like the Buffy television show; they're really cheesey, aimed at a young audience, but for some reason you just can't help but watch.

On a side note, have you been following Morning Editions series this week on new immigrant authors. A lot of the books were best sellers on the Booksense list this summer, and are fascinating reads from what I've been hearing.

Ooo, well, I admit it, I did enjoy more than a few episodes of Buffy...I'll keep Twilight in mind. It sounds fun. Thanks!

About the Morning Edition series, do you mean the short interviews with people about Becoming American? I missed yesterday's, but I caught the one with Junot Diaz and today's with Joseph O'Neill. I think it's great, I wish they'd keep the series going. And I keep hearing good things about O'Neil's book, Netherland...

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
