This Sunday Salon post will be a quick wrap-up of the week, and then I'll start reading. The Classics Circuit visits on Saturday and I'm just beyond the half-way point of The Ladies' Paradise. Emile Zola is becoming a new favorite!
Wuthering Heights Wednesday read-along, hosted by Jill at Fizzy Thoughts has begun. Quite a few participants (like me) are first-time readers. The book's darkness took me by surprise - not at all what I was expecting! I'm really enjoying it, but don't foresee much happiness for these characters. The next post is coming on Wednesday.
A new author discovery last week... My Short Story Monday post, Frank O'Connor's "First Confession", had everything I expected from an Irish author. Are you familiar with O'Connor? Any suggestions for further reading?
My review of Ernest Hemingway: A Writer's Life by Catherine Reef was posted Friday. This provided just the right amount of background information for A Moveable Feast (which I hope to start by the end of the week).
It may be quiet at Lakeside Musing for a few days as I continue with Wuthering Heights and finish The Ladies' Paradise. The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton is still on my iPod. It's an excellent audio and drew me in right away, but I haven't been very good about walking this week.
Hope all the read-a-thon participants catch up on sleep. I need to catch up on reading! Which will you be doing?
