A weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.
I'm alive! It's been a busy couple of work weeks but I read the superb Sense & Sensibility which makes me want to read Pride & Prejudice again just to discover what I missed! The nighstand book pile is a bit tall now (see my cramped-looking Goodreads widget). I blame fluctuating reading moods :)
Read This & Last Week: (1)
Sense & Sensibility- Jane Austen--loved it! I can't wait to get to the review...oh yeah, and all those backlogged ones, too ;)
Currently Reading: (5)
Teacher Man- Frank McCourt--funny, bitterly true hurrah for teachers in tough situations
An Exaltation of Larks- James Lipton--whip-smart history of collective nouns (e.g. a pride of lions)
The Taking of Pelham 123- John Godey--love the movie (the original one) and dipped into this; not sure about it yet. There's a number of racial slurs that make me wince.
The First Wives Club- Olivia Goldsmith--not sure when/if I'll ever finish this
My Life- Bill Clinton--I'm taking this very slow...can you tell?! :)
Next to Read:
I think I'm set for the rest of this week and maybe next week. I'll put my nose to the grindstone and start The Stand by Stephen King next. Maybe I'll finish it by New Year's :D
Have a great reading week!
