Last week was a very slow week for me – in the area of reading, that is. I only finished one book, and didn't make much progress in any of the others I have going right now. Well, there was all that Olympics coverage to watch on the tube every evening – really cut into my reading time. Also, no reviews. But this is a brand new week, and month, and I'm going to try very hard to get myself back on track.
- Finished last week:
People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. I'm working on a review of this one now, and hope to get it posted very soon.
- Reviews posted last week:
Not a one.
- Reading this week (same as last week):
Contact by Carl Sagan
Mrs. Malory and Any Man's Death, by Hazel Holt
Also continuing with The Magnificent Ambersons, by Booth Tarkington
- Next up:
Think I'll probably be starting something for the Memorable Memoir Challenge I've signed up for. Most likely Margaret Drabble's The Pattern in the Carpet: A Personal History with Jigsaws. I was attracted to this one because of the connection with jigsaw puzzles, even though I've never really been able to read any of Drabble's fiction. But I've always been a jigsaw addict, so I'm giving this one a try.
Happy reading ahead!!ReplyDelete
I'm currently reading a memoir.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a fun read, I'm also a jigsaw puzzle lover. Just finished one last week in fact!ReplyDelete
Have a great week,
I LOVED The Magnificent Ambersons. I read it eons ago, but I remember how good it was. I'll check back to see your review.ReplyDelete
Happy reading week!
I was hooked to the Olympics too AND am trying to catch up! They were a lot of fun to watch..especially the hockey US/Canada games!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see what you thought of People of the Book. I really enjoyed her novel, Year of Wonders.
Have a good week!
I read a hazel Holt book in December and actually enjoyed it quite a bit!!ReplyDelete
