Nothing to Say

2 November 2008

It wouldn’t do to fail at NaBloPoMo on the second day. But I have nothing to say. We raked the front and side yard today, so the yards are ready for winter.

I’ve been spending most of the day wasting time online and reading Geraldine Brooks’ Nine Parts of Desire. I’m liking it very much — I think I see a book review in this month’s future!

    Very, very interesting book, especially in hindsight, 20 or so years after she wrote it (IIRC).

    Yes, it was a good read. It’s clear from the beginning that Brooks doesn’t agree with the Muslim idea of women’s place in society, but she backs it up with the Koran and the hadith, so it’s clear this is a reasoned argument.
