Booker reading progress:
glowing reviews of it lately, and it's now moved up my Booker TBR pile. I did read (and adore) Andrea Levy's The Long Song this week, and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts on it with you later this week.
Reading goals this week:
My reading goals this week are to get through The Sopranos and The Siege, the two precursors to longlisted novels. I started The Sopranos last night, and I'm enjoying it thus far. It's a nice diversion from the seriousness of The Long Song. I'm also reading the new Anna Quindlen novel, Every Last One for a Crazy Book Tour. Based on my reactions to The Sopranos and The Siege, I'll decide if I want to read their sequels right away or divert myself with one of the other longlisted novels.
A literary road trip:
Yesterday, I went to visit The Mount, Edith Wharton's home in Lenox, Massachusetts. I went with a few of my P.E.O. (a philanthropic educational organization I belong to) sisters, and we had a wonderful time. I'll have a full post on our adventure (with pictures) up soon!
Today, I'm featured at Reading Through Life as part of Carina's fantastic Reading Roots series. Check it out to learn about how I became the reader I am today!
