  1. Currently listening to The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (wonderful) and reading The House of Leaves – which isn’t a Classic but it will be one day -:-)


  2. Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain – I had to take it back to the library before I got to the end but after getting past the war years, she began to annoy me…I was reading All Quiet on the Western Front at the same time & although it was good to see the war from both sides, literally, All Quiet was just so much more powerful & selfless in contrast to Brittain who was constantly relating everything to her own little circle. Maybe too harsh here, but it’s not often I don’t finish a book especially when I’ve got pretty close to the end of it – I don’t feel any compulsion to borrow it again to finish it off.


  3. I’m about halfway through Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz: Selected Works (translated by Edith Grossman) for the Sor Juana read-along hosted by Juliana of the [blank garden] and me. Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz was the first published feminist writer in the New World. I really enjoy her witty, spirited poetry so far.

    Next I plan to read A Haunted House and Other Stories by Virginia Woolf for heavenali’s #Woolfalong. Can’t wait to dig into this collection!


  4. I am currently reading The Water-Babies by Charles Kingsley – I am very close to finishing it though. I am tempted to read The Story of the Amulet by Edith Nesbit next, which will finish the Psammead trilogy for me.


  5. I’m slowly working my way thru Don Delillo’s ‘Underworld’ . Really powerful stuff so far – but so long!


  6. Having just finished a contemporary novel, I’m looking forward to starting “A Canticle for Leibowitz.” It’s on my CC reading list. It was popular when I was in college back in the ’60s, but I never got to it then.


  7. working my way through some sci-fi classics. Two books left to go in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series! At some point I will also have to finish Henry IV Part II, which I’ve been working on for MONTHS now…
