Welcome to The Reading Life
I have been an on and off participant in The Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer of Crazy for books for a long time. I have found it to be a great place to discover new to me blogs and meet some great book bloggers.
My blog and my reading focuses on an ever evolving collections of reads but for now I am very into South Asian Short Stories, Japanese fiction, classics, Katherine Mansfield, Flannery O'Connor, Elizabeth Bowen and Virginia Woolf. I also read a wide variety of short stories and review an occasional carefully selected new work.
My blog is the home of Irish Short Story Week centered around St Patrick's Day. I am open to book blog events. In August I will be the joint host on August 17 of Indonesian Short Story Day and on August 31, Malaysian Short Story Day. These events will be hosted by bloggers with a special knowledge of the culture of these two countries.
Every week Jennifer poses an interesting question for us-this week she asks us to name an ARC we would love to have-My answer is IQ84 by Huruki Murakami!
I will follow back all who follow me-just leave a comment letting me know you are now a follower
Haven't heard of that book! Hope you don't have a super long wait for it!
Here's my Friday Hops
