Mystic Seaport, Mystic CT
It's Sunday again and this is my last update from Connecticut. How is it that we've been here for two month and it feels more like two weeks?? We've enjoyed time with our daughters, reuniting with old friends, walks along the shoreline, exploring the towns around us, reading and relaxing on the porches, and eating more than a few lobster rolls. We already want to come back next summer!
My reading, unfortunately, has been slow this month. Numerous distractions plus too many days spent on a book I wasn't completely invested in are behind that. The book in question, Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau, is not a bad book, just a case of bad timing. I finally set it aside around the 40% mark with plans to pick it up again later.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
The combination of Novel Pairings two-part podcast discussion and RIP made this seem like the perfect time to revisit this book. My favorite approach to classics lately is a read/listen combination and Thandiwe Newton's audiobook narration is adding to the overall experience. Just past the halfway mark, I'm enjoying the journey... but somehow forgot the book is nearly 600 pages long!
The week ahead//
...probably won't be too exciting. Main events include cleaning, organizing, packing, maybe a pedicure, and driving to central NY. Next weekend is my mother's birthday!
That's it for my week. How was yours? What are you reading?
