Currently Reading...

Davita's Harp by Chaim Potok. Throughout the past three weeks I've been escaping to the back corners of the library for some solitude and quiet during my short lunch breaks. During those three weeks, I read an 1975 easy read Mrs Charles Wallace's 42nd Birthday or something to that effect and am now half way through Davita's Harp. This present book caught my attention because as I was reading this I noticed that Dan mentioned that out of all of the books that he has read, Davita's Harp has had the most impact on him. I thought I should read such a book. So, I am now half way through and look forward with great longing to my lunch breaks when I can go back down to the library and pick up this book again. It is quite a politically charged book and I must say that the communism/fascism arguments don't interest me a whole lot, but the character of Ilena Davita entrances me. I haven't read any Chaim Potok in probably 10 years, so I am quite enjoying getting back into his writing.
