Another week gone by, where does the time go? I still haven't written a review of The Road which I finished last Sunday. I've been putting it off because I'm not sure what to say about it to do it justice. I did pick up Surfacing by Atwood next and while it hasn't completely grabbed me, I'm almost done and should finish it in bed tonight.
For the last few weeks Sunday seems to be my book transition day. The day of finishing one book and starting a new one. It'll be nice to check another challenge book off the list but I'm looking forward to moving on from Surfacing and I think I'm in the mood for something lighter after all the darkness I've been reading about lately. So I've decided to go with Birds of a Feather by Jacqueline Winspear. I read the first Maisie Dobbs book last year and look forward to this second in the series.
Otherwise the only bookish thing I've done this weekend is moving a couple of bookshelves to a different room. This involves taking all the books off, moving the shelves, and putting all the books back on, but since these are the 'reference shelves' it's not quite as fun as fondling my fiction books. In fact with a shelf full of Japanese study material staring at me it only makes me feel a bit guilty, again, for not studying Japanese very enthusiastically. I always mean to study more but never seem to get around to it. Ah well.
It's getting late and the books are calling so I hope you all have a great week!
