It's My Birthday and I'll Read What I Want To...
Yes, today is the day and it looks like I'll be sharing it with royalty. Kate is in labor and the world awaits news of a royal birth.
As for my reading...
Remember last week's stack of abundance? In a moment of rashness, I returned the entire pile to the library and decided to start over. Now that I know about suspending holds, my list should be kept under better control and six books won't become available at the same time. At least that's the plan.
I finished The Dinner by Herman Koch and liked it very much, but talk about weird! This family group would never be on my list of desirable dining companions.
Next, I started Hotel du Lac by Anita Brookner. The writing and descriptions are lovely, but my mood isn't suited to such a quiet novel right now, so I'm setting it aside.
The Good House by Ann Leary is my current audiobook and I LOVE it! The narration is outstanding. Mary Beth Hurt is Hildy Good. I've just passed the half way mark and am already certain it will appear on my list of favorites in December.
The plan today is to search my bookshelves and read whatever strikes my fancy. No review books, no book club selections... it's been a while!
What are you reading today?
