Clean Language

Well, I had my half hour of reading the Clean Language book and the time flew past so I guess that’s a good sign that I was enjoying it.  At this stage though it’s all still completely theoretical and I can’t fully see the applications for me of using it.  That’s not a bad thing though.  I’ll keep reading and watch as the pieces start to join up more coherently!

Brisingr – blimey it’s a big book isn’t it!  I’m really enjoying it but with less than 100 pages to go I’m at the ‘can’t wait to finish it’ stage when I’m getting ready to read the next book!  I have started Parrot and Olivier though and enjoying that.  Might tackle The Dark Side of Love next but …. I found myself in Waterstone’s yesterday buying a guide book for a trip to Berlin next month and was only slightly surprised when Emma Donoghue’s Room found its way into my shopping basket.  Well, it was on offer and it would have been rude not to.  So, it could easily be the next read.

If you’ve read Room, let me know what you thought of it.  Should it be next?

    Hi Karen, re Clean Language, once you’ve finished it give me a shout to talk applications, if you’d like. Judy

      Thanks Judy, that’s really kind of you. Your response was very timely because I was half considering giving up on the book but now am spurred on to continue reading. I find in life that sometimes the things I resist prove to be the most useful and powerful ultimately. Thanks again, I’ll be in touch.

      Hi Judy, just wanted to let you know that I’m really struggling with the book. Let me clarify – I’m beginning to realise it’s not the right book for me right now. Even though I have very, very few followers and therefore no influence to speak on in the blogging world, I don’t want to appear in any way to be being negative about the book so I propose setting it aside until my world is ready to receive its wisdom and just not mention it again in my blog.
      I wanted to give you a heads up though so you don’t think I’m not bothered or interested – there’s just so much else going on and I think I mentioned originally it was a friend who lent me the book rather than me seeking it out.
      Ah, timing is everything eh!
      Thanks again for your support and I’ll look forward to reading Clean Language when the time is right for me to receive its powerful messages.
      Smiles, Karen
