Recently I was scrolling back through my Kindle purchases when I discovered that at some point I'd purchased a pair of L.M. Montgomery novels in a single volume. I'm reading The Story Girl at the moment and it is...not my favorite. Did she write anything else with a male narrator? I'm not sure his voice works very well.
I am also reading Beyond Addiction. Do you have any substance abusers in your life, whose follies reduce you to despairing facepalms? This book is about responding with kindness and science. And really, if I had a life motto it would be "Kindness + science for the greater glory of God." It's so hopeful. I've read a bunch of books on substance abuse and this one is especially good.
I finished Trollope's Barsetshire Chronicles recently and immediately bought the 99-cent version of The Way We Live Now. (At the same time I bought Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and read it in about a day. It will take me a fairly large number of days to read TWWLN.) (Did anybody else read Eleanor O? I have some thoughts about Eleanor O.)
Also in my current-ish reading stack: The Signature of All Things. I bought it back in February, when it was on sale and Lissa Wiley recommended it, but I keep bogging down. I've read the first chapter about five times. It's unusual for me to bog down in a Lissa Wiley recommendation, though, so I keep thinking I should keep plugging.
Almost all of my reading is e-books these days, but I am also reading a physical book, another Lissa recommendation. Her mention of 84 Charing Cross Road spurred me to read that one, and now I'm in the middle of Q's Legacy. Hanff's voice is a delight.
NaBloPoMo plus the roommate fitness challenge = too many late nights for me. (And! I was third in the challenge at the last reckoning. What is up with that, I ask you?! Let's hope my evening Zumba class restored me to my rightful place at the top of the heap.) I'll see you tomorrow, friends.
