Blog Discovery!

I've added a wonderful blog to my "Blogs of Substance" list. Caroline, who lives in the German-speaking area of Switzerland, maintains an immensely thought-provoking book blog, "Beauty is a Sleeping Cat."

I am so glad to have learned about Caroline's blog. She writes about books in English, in German sometimes, and in French (I think). In any case, her blog posts are stimulating, intellectual, and well worth a look.

Today I continued reading State of Wonder by Ann Patchett and Settlement by Christoph Hein. They are both *sparkling* reads. And I will report on them.

Tomorrow Ken is hoping to install a new hard drive on this laptop, which means it will be wrested from my arms and I will be bereft and inconsolable if the "fix" goes on for too many hours.


  1. I've been following Caroline for a while and her breadth of reading is really amazing--I agree! I'm envious that she can read so many books in their original language. I've heard good things about the Ann Patchett book but the Hein is new to me--looking forward to hearing what you have to say about them!

  2. Thank you so much, to both of you, for your kind words.
    Danielle's is my first book blog ever. And now she has sort of introduced us which is great...
    I'll be very interested to read more of you.

  3. Danielle,
    Yes, I have you to thank for my discovery of Caroline's blog. And Danielle, your blog continues to be a splendid place to hang out!

    I've picked up so many good reads from you.
