It’s time for an overdue update. I have now finished Tina’s Mouth: An Existential Comic Diary. For a project for her high school Existentialism Class, Tina writes letters to Jean-Paul Sartre, asking for advice about how to live authentically. I loved this book, because I have a personal interest in existentialism, and I strongly believe that Philosophy should be part of a student’s education from elementary school up through high school. Also, on a purely aesthetic note, the cover is this saturated shade of turquoise blue that I find very beautiful.
Also, I finished The Abstinence Teacher, and I know I’m fond of this phrase, but it was The Best Book Ever (in this case, The Best Audiobook Ever). I plan to write a review and post it later in the week. I listened to this book while taking a hike in Acadia. It was a beautiful day, and surprisingly not a very busy one. The numerous bubbling brooks and mini-waterfalls caught my attention today:
So, thus far into the challenge, I have read/listened/blogged/networked for a total of 26 hours and 56 minutes (not counting the networking/blogging time that’s happening right now). I have read a total of 3 books and listened to one audiobook. My goal is to reach over 30 hours, and if I stay strong until 8:00 p.m., I think I can reach it 🙂
I plan to finish Bitter in the Mouth and also take some time to write up reviews (still haven’t done any of that yet). Happy reading to everyone who is working on this challenge and thank you to everyone who has helped me out and encouraged me this weekend!
