p.s. I’ve decided on beginning The Detour by Gerbrand Bakker, one of the finalists in the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize. The winner will be announced May 20, and I don’t have a prayer of getting the short list read by then. But, perhaps I will finish this one book tonight, and then the likes of Gary from Parrish Lantern, and Tony from Tony’s Reading List, and Stu from Winston’s Dad will be proud of me. 🙂
Finished! I was actually caught up in the ending, curious as to the arrival of Diana and Matthew in their time travel excursion to Elizabethan England.
Wondering what to read next. Swann’s Way might prove too pedantic. I’m craving a children’s book such as Charlotte’s Web, or an old favorite such as Possession…off to peruse the house, the shelves, the stacks of books lying in wait.
