"The true felicity of a lover of books is the luxurious turning of page by page, the surrender, not meanly abject, but deliberate and cautious, with your wits about you,
as you deliver yourself into the keeping of the book. This I call reading."
--Edith Wharton, attributed
I've been delivering myself into the keeping of several books lately. Enjoying the R.I.P. challenge, I have now finished the third and fourth books for the challenge: Shakespeare Undead, a funny mashup of vampires and zombies, by Lori Handeland and The Haunted Abbot, a medieval mystery by Peter Tremayne. Reviews to come.
I've also finished The Sting of Death by Rebecca Tope, a curious mystery that kept me involved even when most of the characters were unsympathetic, and I"m in the middle of The Crimson Rooms by Katharine McMahon, a compelling novel set in 1924 London.
