Sunday Selection

Today I’ve not done much reading because I’ve been doing an index to my ABC Wednesday posts. Clicking on the link goes to the page and it is also linked in the Indexes tab at the top of the blog.

Other than that I’ve been reading Wherever You Go by Joan Leegant. I’ll be writing my thoughts about the book later on, but for the time being there is a discussion about it on Carrie’s Books and Movies blog.

I’ve read some more of Faulks on Fiction by Sebastian Faulks. So far I’ve read his thoughts on Robinson Crusoe, Tom Jones and Becky Sharp – all very interesting. I didn’t see the TV programmes, so it’s all new to me, although I have read these three books.

I also been looking through the newbooks magazine which came a couple of days ago. It’s time to decide which of the ‘free’ books to choose or indeed whether to pick any of them. Two of them are collections of short stories – not my favourite genre. The other two books look interesting – French Lessons by Ellen Sussman, but it’s written in the present tense, so I won’t bother with that. The last choice is more promising – Dark Matter: a Ghost Story by Michelle Paver. I’ve seen some good reviews of this, so I’ll read the extract and make up my mind later on.

  1. Margaret – Thank you so much for indexing your alphabet posts! What a terrific idea for helping readers find them :-). The Paver looks interesting! I may take a look at that myself!

  2. Margaret – I would be interested to hear what you think about Dark Matter. I love ghost stories but not when they are too frightening. I am considering this one – do write a review if you decide to read it.

  3. Margot, it was as much for myself as for readers 🙂 but I’m glad you approve!!

    Sarah, I’m not keen on being too frightened either. I will write about it if/when I read Dark Matter.

  4. I have only flicked through the newbooks magazine so have not decided on any book.

    I also have one they sent me to review, but I have yet to get right into it.
