My Reading News

For the record, I am reading it and today I found myself perusing the pages of The Female Eunuch whilst wearing an apron and cooking dinner.

In other reading news the new Jasper Fforde One of Our Thursdays is Missing I found dissappointing. WHY? WHY! Why do fabulous ideas and series become tired? Answer me that. I found myself not really caring how zany it was. Bad sign.

Also I finally read Freedom by Jonothan Franzen and if you have any interest in contemporary American culture you must read it. It is beautifully written and whilst none of the characters we particularly nice to each other it was an absolute pleasure.

Oh, and John Mortimer's The Sound of Trumpets scored for $2 was a fun and entertaining read with a last line that sat sadly and flat.
