Isn’t it funny how, even if I have 50+ books on my TBR pile staring me in the face, I still feel as if I have nothing to read? The only solution is to go raid the library shelves, which is exactly what I did last Friday. Here’s what I came away with:
- Making Money by Terry Pratchett. A reread, because now that I’ve read Going Postal I think some parts of Making Money (the sequel) will make a lot more sense.
- Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I’ve been meaning to read it for ages! The edition I have is over 1000 very thin pages, though, so I’m a little worried.
- False Colours by Georgette Heyer. I just really love her romances! She always does interesting things with the characters, and there’s a lot of humor in them, too.
- The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon. Figured it was time I read it or something.
- The Eldritch Conspiracy by Cat Adams. Wanted an adult fantasy novel since I’ve been reading so many children’s/YA ones lately. Only now I found out it’s book 5 in a series– when nothing ABOUT the series is mentioned anywhere on the actual book. Is it important to have read the first four books, or can I just start with this one, you think?
Right now I’m about halfway through Making Money and I AM understanding a lot more thing! Not least the whole idea behind “gold standard” and why it’s silly, which I mostly skimmed over last time.
What are you reading this week?
