|The artist's wife reading, by Henri Bouvet (French, 1859-1949)|
I've been taking a little break from reading for the last few weeks. Not because I wanted to, really. But I was hit with a pretty horrendous allergy attack right around the middle of September, and my eyes were so swollen and inflamed and itchy, that reading for more than a few minutes was a real problem. I'm pretty much back to normal now, though -- whatever was causing the attack must be past its peak season or something. Or maybe the rains we've had recently just washed the irritants out of the air. Don't know. But at least I'm able to read again, and for the moment all's right with the world!
So this week, I'm back to two books I was reading when the attack started:
Night Film: A Novel, by Marisha Pessl
and The Small Hand and Dolly, by Susan Hill
I'm about halfway through each of these, so I should be able to finish them up this week. (Fingers crossed for no more allergies!)
