O.K. I’m a day late posting Monday’s meme, for which I apologize… but doesn’t the saying go: better late than never?
With three books in the queue to post reviews for this week, I’m behind in more ways than one. My review of The Cheese Chronicles by Liz Thorpe will be up by tomorrow morning (yes, I know you’ve heard that before). I enjoyed it very much. I promise the review will be worth the wait.
Next is The Italian Secretary by Caleb Carr, a Sherlock Holmes mystery that I downloaded to my ipod last week. I’ve noticed the reviews on Amazon and Audibles gave this a bad rap, which in my opinion is completely unearned (and I’ll be happy to tell you why in a couple of days!)
Last is The Sartorialist which, if you haven’t heard about this book yet, you really need to check out the blog before reading the review. Here is a link.
And what AM I reading this week? It’s time to get back to Byatt. I’ve been slowly working my way through The Children’s Book – not because of lack of enjoyment. Just lack of time. Byatt is one of those authors I feel merits, really demands, her readers full attention for uninterrupted blocks of time.
(By the by – I’m playing with the new WordPress/Blackberry beta for this post. It’s my first time, so be kind! I’ll spiff it up later today).
