Currently Engaged

Yesterday was a windy, cold, rainy day, but instead of reading, I continued working on my various sewing projects. I did spend about 30 minutes on Alias Grace, but that was the extent of my reading.

I posted the review of Tender at the Bone in November Reading the other day, and intended to quickly finish up with Alias Grace, but still have a ways to go.

Here are some of the books on my Want to Read List (and where I can remember, the blog source):
Aldrich, Bess Streeter. A Lantern in Her Hand. (booklogged)
Atwood, Magaret. Alias Grace. (Reading Matters) [currently reading]
Aycliff, Jonathan . The Lost.
Baricco, Alessandro. Silk. (Reading Matters)
Berry, Liz. The China Garden. (bklogged)
Birkin, Andrew. J.M. Barrie and the Lost Boys: The Real Story
Behind Peter Pan.

Blake, Sarah. The Grange House. (My Indiv. Take)
Buzbee, Lewis. The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop. (A Wk in Pr.)


  1. A Lantern in Her Hand is one of my all-time favorites! I discovered Aldrich when we moved to Nebraska. Definitely one to read again someday.

    I enjoyed The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop quite well. It brought back quite a few memories of working in a bookstore a few years ago. I reviewed it this past summer.

  2. Jenclair, I have never read A Lantern in Her Hand, so someone else must have suggested it. After what Les had to say about it (above), I need to add it to my list. I'm going to wait until you review the J.M. Barrie book before adding it.

  3. Les - Since I was mistaken about Booklogged recommending A Lantern in Her Hand, I may have found it on your blog! :P

    Booklogged - I don't have most of these books...yet. This is just from the list of books I've jotted down from visiting different blogs. And it just keeps growing!

  4. You'll really enjoy Silk...I read this a number of years ago...time for a reread!

  5. Heather - I went to the library yesterday and forgot my list, but I'm going to try for Silk soon!

  6. I need to read Aldrich, too!
