Well, I slowed down a bit last week. After a pretty fast take-off earlier in January, last week I only managed to finish one book -- The Shakespeare Thefts, by Eric Rasmussen. I did read a portion of another (A Man of Parts, by David Lodge), but after the 50-page test, decided it's not for me. So -- one book finished and one book abandoned.
This week, I've got several books going (as usual). But the ones I'm concentrating on are Liberty by Garrison Keillor (one of his Lake Wobegon novels), and another nonfiction Early Reviewer book from Library Thing, Republic of Words: The Atlantic Monthly and Its Writers 1857-1925, by Susan Goodman. I'm about halfway through the Garrison Keillor book and enjoying it, though with reservations. Haven't actually started the Goodman book, so I can't say anything about it yet -- looks fairly scholarly, with over fifty pages of notes and index.
And I'm also still reading two chunksters -- Kate Morton's The House At Riverton, and A.S. Byatt's The Children's Book -- although I've put them on hold until I finish up the other two. So I've got plenty to keep me bookishly busy this week.
