The Sunday Salon
Or is it Monday Salon? Yesterday was my anniversary so I did not post and I since I did not do a Salon post last week I thought I would pop in and write one real quick.
Every reader needs a challenge, right? I am still reading The Italian by Ann Radcliffe. I think it has been almost two weeks since I started it and I usually read about 2 books a week. I have thought about abandoning it but so far I've decided to keep at it. It is not that I don't like it, it is just a book that I can only read short snippets of at a time. It is interesting, for the most part, and so I am just going to keep pushing through.
I needed a break from The Italian and pulled the History of Joseph Smith by His Mother off my shelf. This is not exactly a light and easy read either but it is something different. I've read it before, probably about 10 years ago. So I am breaking one of my own reading rules by reading more than one book at once. I usually only read one book at a time because I don't like going back and forth between books.
I also started reading the Merry Wives of Windsor over the weekend but I will probably set it aside until I finish The Italian.
So, that is how my reading is going. Slowly plodding along.
