It's been awhile since we've had a book update, so for those of you who care: (all two of you...ha!)
--I am almost done with the Great Jane Re-Read; I just have to finish Sandition, which will probably happen today. I loved Lady Susan and the Watsons. I may start her juvenalia, which I've never finished, but we'll see. I also want to read her nephew's biography, A Memoir of Jane Austen, which, again, I have but have never read. :)
--Still reading Ovid's Metamorphoses, but that takes a lot of time and concentration so I'm not reading that as often.
--Picked up FS Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise at the Book Loft last week, so that should be good. :)
--Just finished Ann Pachett's Truth and Beauty, which is a memoir of her friendship with the author/poet Lucy Grealy. Very good, and it makes me want to read the rest of her novels; so far I've only read Bel Canto, which was fantastic, about a group of Souther American terrorists who take over a birthday party for a Japanese business executive, at which a world-famous Soprano happens to be singing (yeah, I enjoyed the soprano part...lots of opera talk!).
--Still reading W&P. This might turn into the Great Fall Russian Novel Project at this rate.
--Also still reading B XVI's book--I plan to make more progress on that today...You know, in between cleaning bouts...ha.
