Bookweek Day 6: Some Final Thoughts

Thought 1: Well, you all have convinced me. I have, once again, started The Scarlet Pimpernel. I am currently 3 chapters in and very confused as to the exact political beliefs of the various men in the bar. But I’m powering on, regardless.

Thought 2: Hamlet just does not have the rabid fan base that The Scarlet Pimpernell does, according to the oh-so-reliable sample size that is my blog comments. So why are people always referencing Hamlet?

Thought 3: I realized, as I read the comments, that I rarely talk anymore, on my blog, about my own plans to write books. So yes, if you’re curious, now that I’m out of school that’s what I’m working on. I’m nervous about blogging about my projects because I always think, “what if I decide to scrap it and then I’ll have to explain??”


Thought 4: My post about diaries had me thinking: most people keep a diary at some point in their life, right? So where do all those diaries go? Do people destroy their own diaries? Shouldn’t families all have heirloom diaries?

Thought 5: This week was such fun. I should do it again sometime.

  1. Thought 4 — My immediate thought on that post was “Who in the world puts their diaries on a yard sale?!” I wouldn’t want mine landing there for the world to read all my whining! Then again mine weren’t really the “Dear Diary, today we…” sort๐Ÿ˜

  2. I’ve already thrown some of my diaries away. No one is going to read some of the things I had written! ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. I think this is a record for me, commenting on a blog twice in two days!
    But, regarding Hamlet…rent or get a copy of the BBC movie version of Hamlet. Watch it, and then read it…That’s my preferred way to do Shakespeare…Hamlet is wonderful, and sad, and a little disconcerting! I think you would probably enjoy it!

  4. My brother has told me for years that I MUST try The Scarlet Pimpernel. Finally I picked up the audiobook for my trip this weekend, and just finished it today. It really was rather excellent, I thought. Gripping, if unrealistic. But hey, it’s not that interesting to stay always within the confines of realism anyhow. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I would, just out of curiosity, be interested in hearing what you think of the “revered” Scarlet Pimpernel. I am going to feel bad if after all the hype and fuss we made over that book, you end up not even liking it. Lol. And as for Hamlet, I don’t think I’ve ever referenced to anything from Shakespeare. I mean, “Beware the Ides of March!” has only so many places it can be used in normal conversation. Then again, I haven’t read Hamlet, so maybe that has something to do with it.
