What are you reading Mondays
I wished I had time to sit and read like this girl in the photo. Is she on the subway? In the park? On her lunch break at work? It must be the subway or on a bus because that guy next to her is really close. Eww. Hope he doesn't smell funny.
When do I read? Whenever I get the chance. While I'm eating is probably the most popular. In fact, my food digests better if I'm reading a good book. Otherwise, I'd probably starve! At least that's what I keep telling Eric when he looks at me like I'm a weirdo. He does that a lot.
I've just finished this week-
The Wives of Henry the VIII - by Antonia Fraser.
An excellent book if you're a fan of this time period at all. Many details. Very informative. I'll review it tomorrow.
These Old Shades - by Georgette Heyer.
As always, I'm gushing. I really liked this book. Regency romance at its finest. If your heart quivers for subjects like disguise, hand and finger kissing, men that wear wigs and make-up, dashing heroes that always get their man, and words like my dear, my infant and I worship the ground you walk on, you'll like this book. In fact you'll like any Heyer book as she's mastered the pistol, sword play, kidnapping, and the art of female rescue to such a fine point in her pen that my heart melts with each passing word. See, now I too am lost in the language. Sigh, it's a hopeless case.
What I'm currently reading -
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. Meet Thursday Next, or Stephanie Plum with a really cool name. Really liked this one so far.
Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare. Of course fantastic!
Listening to: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling. Seriously it makes cooking in this heat that much easier.
