To The Lighthouse
So I have fallen at the second hurdle and totally failed to read 'To The Lighthouse' for the 'Woolf in Winter' challenge. I have been so taken up with the pile of books from the library (like waiting for a bus, you wait for weeks and then four arrive at the same time); 'Howards End is on the Landing' was gobbled up in a few days and am now working on Zoe Heller's 'The Believers' as we are reading it for my next book club meeting. Added to that I started 'Pride and Prejudice' at the hospital last week and have been reading it over breakfast to try and make a bit of progress (this is a bit of a 'duty' read, to try and support my daughter doing it for her IGCSE). Then M and I started on 'Lost in a Good Book' by Jasper Fforde, a follow up to 'The Eyre Affair', which has us laughing out loud with every page. Then there is the poetry that has been very interesting in the last couple of weeks. I went to the local bookshop, that does have a decent cheap classics selection, but they only had 'Mrs Dalloway'. Dunk thought is daughter might have a copy but it turned out not. So I'm sorry, though I still plan to get around to reading it, but for anyone interested please visit over on on Emily's Blog, as she is hosting the discussion and has listed all the other participants who have reviewed the book today.
