A special thanks to Miss K at Champagne Dreams for this weeks theme
of,"This is my current reading material." At last the last 3 crazy hectic months are done with and I can breath deeply, sleep in (when my body clock gets back on a normal schedule) and read something besides customers orders. This past Wednesday at lunch I headed over to Talize, a good second hand store that is nearby. While there I bought some neat craft ribbon that I found and a few books that looked interesting. One of the books I bought and that I am currently reading is called, Wild Swans, Three daughters of China. It is written by Jung Chang and won the 1992 NCR book award and the 1993 British Book of The Year award. The book is an autobiographical family history. It is the story of Jung's grandmother, her mother and herself. The historical events in the book are eye opening. I find the descriptions about 20Th century Chinese every day/common events and culture fascinating. I have only read about one quarter of the book and am liking it very much. On what I have read so far I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading historical fact, not only political fact but things about everyday people and how they lived, worked and played. Of course anybody interested in Chinese culture will be sure to like this book also.
