Through The Lens: Memoirs of a Geisha

Welcome to our weekly meme, Through The Lens! We’re combining a love of books with photography in order to visually display what we read and love.

How It Works

Each Thursday BA will be sharing a photograph taken of a book, such as a current read, recommendation, or a favourite, with an object or in a setting the reader feels represents an element in the story. Then we’ll share a short blurb about why we chose it.

You Can Join In Too

If you want to participate you can. You don’t have to be an expert photographer, the point of this meme is to be creative and share! Take your book, including eBooks, and display those covers with something that shows what you took away from the story. You’re welcome to post another day, we just like alliteration here at BA, and there is no theme unless you want to have one.

We do ask, if you wish to join in, that you grab the banner, link back to us, and share your link too so everyone can see your photos!

This Week

There’s no theme at all this week after our Halloween Madness one from last week so I picked an old favourite from my Mum’s bookshelf.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden – I don’t remember when I read this, but I know I loved it. I have a thing about Eastern cultures and went through a phase of wanting to read biographies, memoirs, and autobiographies set in the Asian countries I was obsessing about. Maybe it had something to do with discovering different perspectives shaped from alternative cultures to my own, whatever it was, I found Memoirs of a Geisha hard to put down.

    • Interesting because I’ve actually heard that about the movie.
      I don’t think everyone loves it either. I’ve seen quite a few low ratings around online for it amongst the higher ones.
