It’s been rather a good week for reading. I’ve finally finished Sons and Lovers and am very pleased to see it gone. I had planned to read Lady Chatterley but think I will not be doing so for the forseeable future – unless one of you can tell me it’s a whole lot better than Sons and Lovers? Karen Armstrong’s book Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life wasn’t really a good fit for me which is disappointing – I wanted a more strongly Christian book – but hasn’t put me off reading more of her work!
I’m reading Elinor M Brent-Dyer’s The School at the Chalet and expect to finish it today. It’s delightfully dated (written in the 1920s) and a long enough time has elapsed from my last reading that I’ve forgotten many of the details so it’s sheer, escapist pleasure – and after two heavy reads I think I deserve it!
Next up shall be James MacDonald’s When Life is Hard for which I received a review copy this week. I’m really looking forward to this one – watch this space for a review later in the week!
