The Sunday Exchange (11/18/18): Share a Post about a Book for Which You Are Grateful

Sunday Exchange

Introduction

The Sunday Exchange is a new weekly feature we are introducing at Pages Unbound where we ask you, our readers, to share a post from your own blog that matches the week’s theme.  The goal is to allow you to share posts you are proud of or think other people will find interesting and to help other people find fun posts to read.

This Week’s Theme

Share a Post about a Book for Which You Are Grateful

The “Rules”

  1. Share your post title, the URL of the post, AND a brief explanation of what the post is/why you think people might like to read it in a comment on this blog post.
  2. Try to make the post fit the week’s theme.
  3. Please share only one post each week.
  4. The post does not have to be recent. It can be from any time in your blog’s archives.
  5. Consider visiting some other bloggers’ posts.
  6. We won’t be closing the comments after a week has passed, so *technically* you can still add your post later, but it may not get that much traffic if you share your post a month later.

That’s it! We hope you participate, and check back next Sunday for a new theme and another chance to share!

    This year, I’m thankful to have been exposed to the writings of Álvaro Enrigue, both for his challenging novel “Sudden Death” and for his recent essay about his lifelong relationship with baseball. I’m also grateful for the work of translators in bringing his writing to a wider audience: “Sudden Death” has only been available in English for about two years.

    This week, I am grateful (or thankful, if you’re in the U.S.! Happy Thanksgiving!) for the book Dietland by Sarai Walker. It’s about a fat woman who writes emails to teen girls who write in to a fashion magazine with their minuscule problems. Suddenly, she quits, is pulled into a secret society, and we follow her as she changes her attitude toward women’s bodies. This book changed my thinking. It’s a POWERFUL novel that everyone should read, and shame on AMC for cancelling the show.

    Gah! I didn’t contribute to this one! I teach at a trimester school so I was in end-of-term-grading hell for the last few weeks and I just got around to reading it now :(. Siiiiiiiiiiigh. At least I’m done with grades my time is my own once more (at least for now) and I think this was the first one I missed so I guess it’s not too bad…but still!
