Whatcha Reading? Wednesday

| | Comments (4)

Let's see. This past week I finished Georgette Heyer's Black Sheep, which I bought at Barnes and Noble. Who knew they had any of her books? It was another keeper, and I may like Miles Calverleigh as well as any of her heroes. Well, not as well as Beauvallet, but I'll always carry a torch for him, because he was my first Heyer hero.

Currently I am reading Very Good, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse. I'm enjoying it immensely, but it is driving PapaC crazy, because while he's trying to go to sleep at night, I am trying to laugh quietly. And then, since I'm that kind of laugher, I snort just a little tiny bit.

He sighs, turns over and says, "OK, just read it to me. Maybe you can get it out of your system."

But I can't. Practically every paragraph makes me laugh.

I am also reading The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in spare moments, in my quest to re-read all of the Narnia books this summer.

How 'bout you?


i've been reading tom bedlam by george hagen. it's a novel set in victorian england, scotland and north africa. a real page turner! one of those you bring to the kitchen while you cook.

also some john holt and hansel and gretel 100 times a day.

I love me some John Holt. Didn't he write _Better Late Than Early_ about boys and learning? I found that one immensely reassuring.

I'm off to look up the novel you're reading!

NOPE, it was Raymond Moore who wrote Better Late than Early. Worth your read, too, IMHO.

I liked John Holt too and read a lot of him before we started the whole homeschooling quest.

haven't heard of that one, good to know! now i'm off to look...
