Kindle Deal — The Secret Piano

I’m interrupting Language Week briefly to let you know that a great kindle book is on sale today for 2.99.

It’s called The Secret Piano: From Mao’s Labor Camp to Bach’s Goldberg. I blogged about the book earlier in a post titled “Sneaking a Piano into a Labor Camp.”

If you’re looking for a great read, you’ll enjoy this book.

  1. Hi Joann
    I’ve been reading your blog for a couple years but have never subscribed.
    My sister-in-law, Colleen Drisner, told me about it and I’ve been hooked ever since!
    I spent a couple weeks in Beijing last October. It was fabulous!
    Thanks for posting such great articles!

  2. At last, I found your blog on the internet. I’ve been trying to study Chinese for some time now but there is little time to invest. But now that there is more spare time coming up, I am glad to have read your post which is enlightning to me. In class I was not told this clear about what to expect about to meet in trying to learn my ancestors’ (partly) language. It was hard in the time past, but I enjoyed it on my own. I have read a book by Cedilia Lindqvist about Chinese characters. Magnificent. I intend to get to at least level 4 within the coming few years. I hope to keep on track according to your advice and be realistic all the way.
    I am, just as you seem to be, a person of ongoing learning. Things don not stand still, nowhere. So it is good to keep being engaged all the way….. :-).
    Reading your ‘novel'(?) will certainly help me enjoying the language I am in to make my own as far as possible, and reading your posts today ensure me that your book will be as realistic and as fascinating as to the idea I got from your post. I’ll keep visiting your place regularly on a frequent base for sure!
    Thanks for being so kind in sharing your joy of life in such a delightful way. It’s great!

  3. I subscribed! I enjoy reading your blog regularly, as my family is planning to move to China in about a year. I’m hoping to learn as much as I can about being a foreigner in China before I actually get there to make the landing slightly easier 🙂
