Happy Sunday all! I admit, I have done absolutely nothing this weekend. Yesterday I was out of my bed for maybe two hours. That gave me a lot of reading time though, which is what I had wanted. I just love having a day with absolutely no obligations. However, I think I OD’d on sleep, so I am trying to make up for my laziness today!
So, with all my laying about yesterday, I finished Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters. This poses a big issue only because I am having a hard time finding a book to follow it up with, it was THAT good. It is only the second book of Waters’ that I have ever read, and that is tragic. I need to seek out all of her books ASAP!
So, I am supposed to be starting off on my Booker challenge, which I mentioned in my post last Sunday–I want to spend the next two weeks reading from this years longlist or winners from previous years. Unfortunately, I forgot I need to read my book club book for our meeting on the 27th–The Zookeeper’s Wife, by Diane Ackerman. So I started it yesterday, but . . . it just wasn’t striking me. I was not in the mood for non fiction, I guess. So I started February, by Lisa Moore, which was longlisted for this year’s Booker. The writing style is a little too disjointed for me, so I wasn’t completely onboard with this one either. So we’ll see where my reading goes today.
So that’s where my reading is at this point–to make up for my lazy day yesterday, I probably won’t get as much reading done today, as I have some household chores to catch up on. I hope everyone else will get some reading done though!
