This week I finished That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo. I was tempted to finish it last Sunday afternoon, but decided to slow down and savor it for a few more days. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson was the book for yesterday's flight. This is the first YA novel I've picked up since high school and, even though I only read half of it before deciding to take a nap, it's obvious that Anderson really gets it right! It makes me glad I'm not there any longer. This book should lead to a great discussion with my sixteen year old twins!
I also posted my review of A Thousand Days in Venice. This was the final stop of my virtual Italian vacation, but now there are plans for a real one...maybe in another year or two!
For the week ahead - Persephone Reading Week Challenge starts tomorrow! My chosen grey-covered book is Someone at a Distance by Dorothy Whipple. There may not be much reading time on this trip, but at least I'm there in spirit. What books will you be enjoying this week?
