The reading week

And so, a new week begins again. Funny how that works. Hopefully, with luck, a fair wind and the stars in alignment, I will have finished The Vintner's Luck by tomorrow night (Monday) so I can return it to the library just a few days late.

I was cross-eyed tired last night, so instead of The Vintner's Luck I turned to an old favourite, Agatha Christie, to see me off to dreamland. I anticipate I'll finish that this week, too.

Then what, I hear the masses cry out, biting their nails at the thought of being left in suspense. I'm not entirely sure. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte is October's classic novel, so I will hopefully start that this week.

I've re-sorted my library and book review books, and some have been put on the backburner for the time being. Also, some were due back at the library that I hadn't already started reading, so they went back on Friday.

Hmmm ... I have a couple of Star Trek: Voyager novels that I got out of the library last time, and they may be calling, after A Moveable Feast and The Vintner's Luck back-to-back. Something light, like my Christies, but something I haven't already read 100 times. I think that's what the book doctor ordered.

Have a great week everyone, full of rainbows and puppies, if that's your thing. Or you know, barbed wire and large rats, if that's what fries your onions. :)

I can't wait to hear what you think about The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. I loved it, and have wanted to read something else by Anne Bronte, but haven't yet.

I'm hoping to start it at the weekend _ I'll let you know how it goes. :)
