It’s been another busy week for me in terms of blogging and writing reviews. Since my Salon post last Sunday, I’ve posted six new reviews: Under the Rose and Rites of Spring (Break) by Diana Peterfreund, Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott, After Dark by Haruki Murakami, The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and Sweet Love by Sarah Strohmeyer. I’m still toying with the idea of going back and filling in the reviews for books I read earlier this year, but haven’t decided one way or the other.
I decided this week that I wanted to try doing a reading marathon of sorts. Several of the books I’ve acquired recently have been by Alexandre Dumas, and that brought the total count to six books of his I own, and I’ve only ever read The Three Musketeers. And that was ten years ago. I’m finding that while I remember the beginning just fine, I don’t remember the rest of it so well. So I’m going to have an Alexandre Dumas marathon. It’s pretty simple. By the end of October, I’d like to have read all six of the books I own. Five of them are in the Musketeers cycle, so I’ll be reading them in order, and then concluding with The Count of Monte Cristo. My original post about the marathon is here. I started The Three Musketeers this week, and so far, I’m enjoying it rather a lot. D’Artagnan is something of a nuisance, but he’s got self-confidence in spades. And you’ve gotta appreciate someone with that much self confidence.
Hope you all have a great Sunday! I’m looking forward to catching up on everyone’s posts later!
