Journal Entry 1 by wingyogiewing from Stockholm, Stockholm Sweden on Monday, October 09, 2006
Bought for my Eng. lit. class. It is probably an intresting read. I know I'll find out ;)

From the back:
Sula and Nel are two young black girls; clever and poor. They grow up together sharing their secrets, dreams and happiness. Then Sula breaks free from their small-town community in the uplands of Ohio to roam the cities of America. When she returns ten years later much has changed. Including Nel, who now has a husband and three children. The friendship between the two women becomes strained and the whole town grows wary as Sula continues in ther wayaward, vagabond and uncompromising ways.

A very strange, but beautiful book about a friendship between two women.
Sula is a very peculiar person, but I think that considering everything that has happened in her life, you can understand why she turned out the way she did.
I can't wait until we analyse and discuss this one!

I will reserve this book until after my lit. exam on the 19th of dec, and then I will turn it into a bookray.
PM me if you're interested!

The bookray will start in early January 2007. A month is probably enough to read this book, since it is pretty short, only about 170 pages. It's a paperback and not very heavy.

Journal Entry 5 by Mariabokmal from Malmö, Skåne Sweden on Saturday, January 13, 2007
A rich and colorful story about friendship and shaping your own life. It's set in av peculiar village, where the inhabitants actually let each other have their own lives, even if they don't understand or approve.

Will send it to Deepswamp today!

Journal Entry 7 by wingDeepswampwing from Oskarshamn, Småland Sweden on Thursday, January 18, 2007
"Full of beuty, eccentricity, bustle, laughter, sensuality, generous affection..."
A whole different world opens when reading Sula. I take a look at my life and all the things I own...
and try to understand the life of the people in Toni Morrisons book.
Thanks for the upportunity to read this book!

This book arrived on friday, but because I wasn't home, I had to wait until today before I could get it from the post office. I have really been looking forward to reading it so I began right away.

Journal Entry 9 by pulcherrima from Aarhus N, Århus Amt Denmark on Monday, March 05, 2007
I liked this book, but must say I wasn't really as moved by it as I've heard others have been.

Will PM shimi for adress.

Journal Entry 11 by shimi from Nordre Aker bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Thursday, March 08, 2007
The book arrived in today's mail. Will start reading it as soon as I've finished the books I'm reading now! :)

Journal Entry 12 by shimi from Nordre Aker bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Saturday, March 17, 2007
I've just finished reading Sula, and I must say that I liked this book a lot to begin with... it was beautifully written, and I really enjoyed the different world Toni Morrison introduced me to. However, I felt the book didn't have a lot of character development, and later in the book I didn't really care about the people in it. It was still an interesting read, and a book I'm glad to have read.

Will send it to LESEHEST on Monday if she's ready to receive it! :)

Journal Entry 13 by shimi from Nordre Aker bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Wednesday, March 21, 2007
LESEHEST wanted to be skipped, so I'm sending the book to sirah tomorrow, 22/3-07.
Happy reading! :)

Journal Entry 14 by Sirah from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, April 02, 2007
The book arrived some days ago but due to the sad incident of my computer collapsing wasn´t able to make journal entry earlier. Thank you, Shimi for sending it and Yogie for starting the ray!

Journal Entry 15 by Sirah from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, April 23, 2007
A very odd story of a friendship. Somehow I liked it, somehow I didn´t.

What a collection of strange family members: You cut your own leg for getting benefit, throw a child accidentally to lake and don´t intend to get help, burn your son to prevent him from the disaster of drugs, let your mother to be burnt and just watch her burning....

Anyway, Toni Morrison is a GREAT author!

Next on the ring is Sobergirl but if you Yogie don´t mind I would first pass the book to Ahava who lives in my neighbourhood and then she´ll send it Sobergirl.

Thanks again for letting me to join the ray!

Journal Entry 16 by Ahava from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Tuesday, April 24, 2007
Ahava (from Sirah's neighbourhood :) got the book today, started it in the train on a way back home from a Helsinki get-together (isn't this the correct word?) and can't leave the story. This might be one of those "take-vacation-from-your-day-to-day-life-to-read-me" -books.

Journal Entry 17 by Ahava from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, July 16, 2007
Three months is far too long a time to keep a book in one's shelf. I'll send Sula to Sobergirl as soon as possible. I think she needs something else to think about these days.

Journal Entry 18 by Sobergirl from Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Wednesday, July 18, 2007

Toni Morrison is one of my all-time favourite writers, and this is a book I haven't read before.
I have some books to read before this one (Purple Hibiscus, the new Harry Potter, and a Maya Angelou) but I don't think they will take a lot of time, after that I will start reading "Sula". I look very much forward to reading this!
Thank you Ahava for sending me the book!

Journal Entry 19 by Sobergirl from Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Tuesday, July 31, 2007
A good read, eventhough not my favourite Morrison. My favourites are Beloved and Song of Solomon.
Thanks yogie for arranging the bookray!
I will send the book to the participant asap!

Journal Entry 20 by nuriayasmin from Miraflores, Lima Peru on Saturday, August 04, 2007
The book arrived here today. Thanks for sending it, Sobergirl and the Finnish salmiakki were really a nice surprise. I''ve still got some other rings to read but will try to get to this one as soon as possible.


Journal Entry 21 by nuriayasmin from Miraflores, Lima Peru on Friday, October 26, 2007
This was a very fascinating and often also shocking story. Thanks to yogie for this ring and please excuse that it took me so long to read the book. I'll now ask for malagan's address so that the book can continue its journey.

November 5, 2007
As malagan neither answered my PM's nor my forum postings, I asked for ekranda's address and the book is now on its way to the UK.
