My reading this week has taken me from Ireland to New York. I was in Ireland with The Story of Lucy Gault by William Trevor which I finished a couple of days ago. It was quite readable and had some nice moments but I didn't love it either. Have you read anything else by Trevor that you would recommend?
Now I'm in New York with Truman Capote and Holly Golighty in Breakfast at Tiffany's. So far I'm really enjoying it and it may end up being my favourite of the couple other Capote books I've read, but I'll reserve judgement until I'm done. And can you believe that I've never seen the film? Something I'll have to try and rectify soon.
I didn't really do too much reading today but I got to sleep in late which was nice. Then making dinner and doing the dishes and those other household chores made the day disappear. I did listen to a couple more bookish podcasts though and ended up adding a couple more books to my wish list as a result.
Today is also of course the day I said I'd draw the names for my giveaway to celebrate 3 years of blogging! Thank you to everyone for your kind words and to all of you that entered. I hope the next 3 years are just as fun as the last 3 have been! I wish I could give you all something, but on to the winners. I used random.org's List Randomizer and here are the results.
Hear the Wind Sing by Haruki Murakami, goes to mee
Black Rain by Masuji Ibuse, goes to Ramya
Japan 2009 calendar, goes to Stephanie
