Time:// 6:55 pm
The scene:// Quietly typing on my computer as everyone in the house has spread out to their own corner. That hour every Sunday night where the fun and freedom of the weekend recedes to remind us of our Monday morning responsibilities.
Reading:// Finishing Why I Read: The Serious Pleasure of Books by Wendy Lesser and about to start my next two Maigret novels - The Hanged Man of Saint-Pholien and The Carter of 'La Providence.' Also beginning to dip into From the Tree to the Labyrinth by Umberto Eco.
For months:// I have been reading voraciously again. My fastest reading start to the year in five years. I would really like to begin blogging that actively again but I am realistic about that possibility given my work demands. But I won't stop trying.
Planning:// Look at all of the wonderful new titles in the sidebar! The birthday books from March. I have even more in e-book versions but still can't bring myself around to viewing that as owning or calling them recently acquired books. I also don't list ARCs lke the three pictured above. The purist in me. But I plan on diving heavily into all of these, as many as possible, over my spring break that begins this Friday afternoon after school. I have no reading plan. Just gobs of hopefulness.
