Weekly Update: 3/8/15 #Flashreadathon
What Am I Reading?
To be truthful, not very much at all. After an awful slump in February, I decided to put everything aside and take a short break. This weekend's Flash Readathon (#flashreadathon) orchestrated by Heather and Monika has made it easy for me to begin again.
Yesterday I returned to My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante and made it to the halfway mark. This is the first in a series of three novels, and it's rumored that the fourth installment is on the way. I doubt I'll be able to finish the book today, but still plan to set aside an hour or two for reading this afternoon.
What's Up Next?
A return to Barsetshire! I'll continue our #6Barsets project by beginning Trollope's Barchester Towers. It is already loaded on my kindle and the audio version narrated by Simon Vance is on my phone. I hope to begin by the end of the week.
And on Audio...
I'm nearly done with An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alameddine. This is a wonderful novel and the narration is superb, but I may have made the wrong choice in listening. There are so many sentences and passages I want to reread or savor...
On the Blog
Not much. The only thing I posted last week was a few final Sanibel Scenes.
Grocery shopping (the cupboards are bare), dinner with my parents and siblings, and a little more reading. Sadly, no more Downton Abbey for another year.
So it's back to the old routine for me this week. What do you have planned?
