Book Corner: What are you reading today?

“Reading (portrait of Edma Morisot).” Berthe Morisot, 1873.

Here’s a space to tell the club what you’re currently reading. You’re welcome to use the comments below.

We’re not including a Linky box because we want to encourage clubbers to meet here now and then, and talk together as a group.

No pressure, of course! But if you’re feeling social, here’s a space to tell us about your latest classic. As always, you are of course welcome to leave a link to your blog if you prefer to share there.

  1. I recently finished Willa Cather’s *Sapphira and the Slave Girl*. I love Cather, and I had never heard of this book until I found it at a used book sale. It is classic Cather: great characterization, subtle plots, very introspective.

  2. I’ve just finished my CC spin #3 My Cousin Rachel (rave review coming soon 🙂
    I needed something lush and rich and evocative to move onto to, so I’m now halfway through a new book (maybe it will be a classic one day?) called The Last Banquet by Jonathan Grimwood set in France just prior to the revolution.

  4. I’m reading “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. I wanted to finish the book on time to participate on the August’s Jane Austen event but I got behind on my reading but I’m almost close to the end of the story. This is my first time reading something from Jane Austen, I was curious about the story and how it was written. Now, I enjoy so much that I would like to read more from her to get a better understanding of her stories and to catch up with those who participated in the past event. Once I finish with “Pride and Prejudice” I may continue with Emma. I did not post anything on my blog yet, hopefully I will make a list of reviews soon to share them with club and get some feedback from you. Thanks! 🙂

  6. I challenged myself to read all 20 book’s in French written by Emile Zola in his life’s work “Rougon-Marquart series”. It is a daunting task and some books are more interesting than others. Zola suggested a reading list not in the sequence written, but what he thought would be the best format to read all 20. Today I’m reading Au Bonheur des Dames in which Zola critically looks at capitalism and the emergence of large dept stores while small boutiques went bankrupt. Here is the link to my blogpost where you can see which books I’ve compelted. Time to get back to my reading……

      • Denise Bauda ( heroine) is exhausted after her first day in “grand magasin”, Bonheur des Dames and so am I. Zola includes every little detail about silks, satins, wools, tweeds, gloves, furs and the store’s interior. Reading all the names of the sales people and shoppers gets so confusing. I hope Denise has a good cry and sleeps well and is ready to face her new job on day number 2! It is a very “mean and gossipy” environment in “le grand magasin”. I hope this story leads Denise to a little happiness and success!
