I'm still working on I'm Amy and I'm Disabled! I spent a lot of the week reading websites for different disability-related organizations as well as articles about McCune-Albright's Syndrome, medical research, disabilities and advocacy work. I have found quite a few disabled organizations websites as well as blogs for organizations and individuals abandoned or that haven't been updated for a year or more which is kind of sad and a little discouraging. But there are plenty of orgs. still active. The MAGIC Foundation is an organization I belonged to several years ago that offers support and information to the families of children affected by diseases and disorders related to growth issues...MAS falls under this topic. Although MAGIC is geared towards families with children, they have some great information and connections. Every summer they sponsor a convention in Chicago for members with MAS and Fibrous Dysplasia. I'm going to re-instate my membership with them and "friended" their FB page. I've also signed up with The Fibrous Dysplasia Foundation which has a great website. I'm still trying to figure out how to let people on-line know about my blog. I'm thinking about linking to Twitter. I have an account now but it's mostly book-related. I think talking about myself and, more specifically, my diability and issues related to disabilities and the disabled generally, might make some people uncomfortable. I don't want to lose people from my book blog or Twitter account. But, on the other hand... So you see, I'm still thinking and figuring what to do, how to go about this!
I really felt like reading this week ~ Yay! My problem is that I wanted to read so many, too many, of the books I plan to read in the next few months right now! I managed to rein myself in, though. I have a few pages left in Strange Relation by Rachel Hadas and the same with The Sweetness of Tears by Nafisi Haji. I unexpectedly received Cleaning Nabokov's House By Leslie Daniels this week. I signed up to review it for Crazy Book Tours months ago but wasn't sure when it was coming. It's light and funny but also sad and a bunch of other things so I'm enjoying it. I also started Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman, which, so far, is funny, slightly sardonic, intriguing, fantastic! And, of course, The Foreigners by Maxine Swann is going along very well. It's a unique and unusual book and I'm loving that!
What are you reading and enjoying this Sunday?
Enjoy, Stay cool, Read something great!
