It's been an unusual reading week. I finished Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women by Geraldine Brooks, and my book club met Friday for a discussion. I read and posted about Jonathan Franzen's short story "Good Neighbors". It's rumored to figure into his new novel, and I can't wait! One evening was spent with a graphic adaptation of Pride & Prejudice. (What would Jane think?) M.F.K. Fisher's essay "The Secret Ingredient" was the subject of yesterday's Weekend Cooking post, and a review Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear (audio version) was also posted.
But it was Virginia Woolf and Mrs. Dalloway that continued to occupy my literary thoughts this week. The plan was to start To The Lighthouse. It's the next Woolf in Winter book, so I picked it up and read the first chapter/section (what do you call Woolf's divisions?) only to find I wasn't ready to move on to a "new" Woolf. So, there may be a reread of Mrs. Dalloway sooner than originally planned... and probably The Hours, too.
This morning I'll read one more short story, then choose a book from the towering tbr pile to begin this afternoon. What are you reading today?
