It's been a good reading week. As you can tell from my Short Story Monday post, I'm still enjoying The Virago Book of Ghost Stories. Look for the final installment tomorrow!
I finally finished The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. It was a real page-turner, but seems like it took forever to complete. A popular blogger choice of late, I'm struggling to come up with 'an angle'. Hopefully inspiration will strike and there will be a post toward the end of the week.
My review of Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks was posted on Friday. She is the next speaker at the Rosamond Gifford Lecture Series, and my book club is preparing for her talk.
On the audio front, I've listened to the first couple CD's of Great Expectations (in the car) and am thinking about downloading an additional title to my ipod for walking. Do you ever have two audiobooks in progress?
And finally...the latest issue of Bookmarks magazine arrived in my mailbox last week. No fewer than fifteen books have been added to my wish list as a result, including:
Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh
The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa
A Happy Marriage by Rafael Yglesias
Love and Summer by William Trevor
After my walk today, I'll be choosing another story from The Virago Book of Ghost Stories and then starting We Have Always Lived In the Castle by Shirley Jackson.
Will you be reading or recovering today?
