I finished my second book of 2004--Original Sin by P.D. James. I liked it very much--the clues were there all along--nothing pulled out of a hat at the end, but the conclusion just beyond what I had grasped. I like it like that! I can't stand it when I have figured out what has happened on page 150 and have to slog through the next 200 pages for the wrap up. Fortunately (unfortunately?) that doesn't happen too often for me. I like to just ride along on the wave of the story, and I only figure it out if it is blindingly obvious.
Last night I read the first 6 chapters of Pride and Prejudice for the Mommies' read along. I forgot how much I LOVE Mr. Bennet.
I'm about 1/2 way through the first book of the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy--The Bridal Wreath.
Going along with my general nerdiness, and stealing blatantly from The Literarium, I am in the process of starting a new 'blog--simply to make notes on the books that I am reading and have stacked up ready to read. That way, those of you who read the Mamas won't have to slog through long, boring thoughts about what I've read.
I'll let you know when it's ready--just in case you wanted to visit.
