bookjourney hosts this lovely weekly activity. I love this feature, because I try to get around to everyone who posts to see what they're reading.
It's been a tough week. Really tough. Lots going on so my reading time was practically nil. I owe out book blog awards, I'm behind in book mailing for paperback swap, and in general, I need time a lot of time to catch up. But here goes.
Last week: I managed to finish three books, one of which I haven't even reviewed because of no time. First there was Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show, by Frank Delaney. If you haven't read this one yet, you are in for a definite treat. And as you're getting closer to the end, grab some kleenex, a hanky, anything. The ending will pull at your heart. I also finished Peter Hoeg's book Smilla's Sense of Snow. I also read and finished Out Stealing Horses which I never got the time to review, but which my book group really enjoyed.
Currently: I'm trying to make my way through Peter Straub's A Dark Matter, and I don't know if it is because I've been up to my eyeballs at home or what, but I am really having trouble with this one. I'm well past the 100-page mark and I'm still not sure about it.
This week: I start my March reading schedule (which I also have not posted yet) which consists of samples of 10 years of Prize-Winning fiction. I am going to start with Disgrace, by JM Coetzee, then try to get through A Conspiracy of Paper, by David Liss. I'll also be finishing Straub's book, and I want to start on the book in the series previous to Box 21 (see below) called Beast. But who knows.
If anyone else has read Straub's book, I'd love to know what you thought. Otherwise, that's it for today, and hopefully I'll have some breathing room starting tomorrow.
