I came across an amusing article today by P.B. Kerr, the British author of a current hot children's book, Children of the Lamp: The Akhenaten Adventure, about his promotional travels in children's schools across the U.S.

As far as my own reading adventures are concerned, I picked up The Piano Teacher by Elfriede Jelinek, the Austrian woman who has just won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Evidently the Vatican is all in a flap about her winning the prize. I haven't gotten to the bottom of that story yet, but I assume other book blogs are covering it thoroughly. Check out Catholic Online to find out why the Catholic hierarchy is going so ballistic.

Since Sammy's Hill by Kristin Gore has arrived at the library, I don't think I'll be able to finish The Piano Teacher by its due date. Problem is, I won't be able to renew it because of all the people waiting to read it.
