Which means that it’s time for my weekly roundup of all things books.
Last week I finished My Ántonia for Willa Cather reading week. Thank you Ali, your reading week was a fabulous introduction into Cather’s world. I’ll be back for more!
I spent Sunday afternoon summarising my 2014 reading challenges & signing up for four more in 2015 (click on 2015 badge in left sidebar).
After some prompting, I started an easy, no fuss, low-key Charles Dickens – A Christmas Carol readalong (click on badge in left sidebar to join in).
I found a North and South Readalong hosted by Suey et al.
Starting in January this will help me get my 2015 reading challenges off to a flying start!
It has been a busy week with lots going on at work and at home. My head & heart have been somewhat overwhelmed….it is lovely that I have my blog and my books to retreat into to find solace and calm during times like this.
And an extremely patient, understanding Mr Books who gives me loving space!
What will I be reading this week?
After finishing My Ántonia on Thursday evening I was feeling at a bit of an historical fiction loose end. I picked up Signature during my lunch break at work on Friday…and instantly fell into the world of botany created by Gilbert.
I love it when a free-range choice turns out so well 🙂
I will also start A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens this week.
