I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of sad to see this Monday. This weekend, especially yesterday, was so gorgeous and springlike! We played outside, I read outside, took pictures, started digging out the garden, and just generally enjoyed it all. Especially that extra hour of sunlight.
Spring is on its way!
Thanks to the impromptu Flash Readathon this weekend, I got in an extra book, and the source of my garden work. Orchard House by Tara Austen Weaver was a delight. I’ll be telling you more about it soon, so we’ll leave it with an “I Loved It” stamp of approval.
Having finally finished Trigger Warnings by Neil Gaiman (everything I have come to expect from Gaiman!), I started listening to Middlemarch by George Eliot. My friend Amanda from Fig and Thistle voiced some concern with my listening to the audio, but I did my research and I think I found the best reader and production. Don’t you love it when your friend have your back? She’s the best and why I wanted to read the book in the first place. I trust her when it comes to the classics.
Also, is it normal that I kind of want to smack Dorothea? Hope so….
Sometime in the last couple of weeks, I felt that panic that sets in when one has so much one wants to read that one doesn’t exactly know what to pick up. So, I emailed my bud Andi begging her to give me a book, any book, that she wanted me to read. She rather enthusiastically and promptly emailed back with Cinnamon and Gunpowder. Luckily I already had that one! And after I finished Orchard House yesterday, I decided to give it another go (this isn’t the first or second time!) and I think it’s sticking! I love it when that happens.
After these, I honestly have no idea. I’m taking it book by book right now.
What are your plans for the reading week? Read anything good next week?
