I just re-read the first four Miss Julia Books out of boredom. {Ann B. Ross} My order still hasn't gotton here.
Andrew loaned me Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell but I am finding it slow going, but I haven't made it through the first 100 pages yet.
A side note: I have a bid in on a Ditlef, but it isn't the Sonata. The have it listed as Allegra, but they are wrong about that too. Wish you could see my newest addition to my Victorian art collection.
sigh, that was the electric bill money.

I was wondering if you have read any more of JS&MM? Have you found it any easier going?

I'm very curious about this one as the author is a close friend of a friend of mine and she's been dying for me to read it. I haven't had the funds to purchase it new and it stays on continual backorder at the library.

I am not a big fantasy lit person, and I was really slogging it through the slow start. I am now about half way through and it is getting more interesting. I can't say it would rate in my top ten favs. My son, who reads a lot of George RR Martin, and books like that said it was just OK. I wouldn't want to hurt your friends feelings, but I will be relieved just to get this one finished.

Thanks for the unprejudiced impression :) I may just keep waiting on the library copy. If I read it and really enjoy, I can buy it later.

I am currently reading Jen Lancaster's Bitter is the New Black. I find it to be hilarious. I acquired it from bookmooch in used condition. Because I am enjoying it so, I may trade it and buy it new. I am trying to decide if that is a sign of my addiction or not. ;o)

LOL ~ I don't usually replace a paperback with a paperback or a hardback with a hardback, but if I started out with a paperback and really enjoyed it or it's one of a series I collect, I will always replace it with a hardback if I get the chance.

Still slogging through JS & MN, almost half through the 1009 pages.
I finally got one of my Amazon orders, 1001 books you must read before you die. I was rather shocked at how few I had read - only 74. I was also surprised at some of the choices and some which were left out. Mrs. 'Arris goes to Paris was on the list but God's Little Acre was not. Sophie's Choice was not either.
So, I think my task for this year is to pick out a few from this list to read. Since I can't die til I get them all read, I should live to be 200.
