Life seems to be slowing down, slightly, which means I’ve had a bit more time to read this week. I finished:
Persuasion by Jane Austen
The Summer We Read Gatsby by Danielle Ganek
I’m back to reading The City & The City by China Mieville which I stopped and started again to finish The Summer We Read Gatsby which is due for review.
Persuasion was enjoyable and typical Austen fare — girl, boy, letters, and love with a few annoying characters to liven up the story. The Summer We Read Gatsby was a fun, chicky sort of book with some fabulous characters, the beach, and a little romance. It was just the right book at the right time for me. The City & The City is not my normal fare but I have to say that Mieville is a talented writer and I plan to pick up more of his stuff when I finish this one.
It’s been a very lazy weekend for me but it was what I needed. There’s nothing better than a day spent with a book and that’s pretty much been my weekend with the exception of a long nap. And who doesn’t love a nap? 🙂 There’s some writing that I need to knock off today but now that I’ve got myself upright and moving, I think I can easily accomplish the job and get back to my lazy pose on the couch. There was talk of a trip to the gym but I think we’ve given up that thought for today.
Here’s to a good week of reading. Happy Sunday.
