In book-related news, I was actually able to do a fair bit of reading. Thankfully, after a year in which I too-easily got reading headaches, those have largely gone away and I can now read in the car again. On this trip, I mostly read childrens' lit, because it has larger print and simpler plots. Several books helped while away the many long hours there and back again! Unfortunately, I'm leaving again after just one day home, to spend a week visiting my mom and putting on a show with my barbershop quartet to help raise money for our trip to Portland. I hope to write several book reviews tomorrow and put them up over the next few days, as well as catch up on posts from while I was gone.
Here's what I finished on this trip:
Ballet Shoes, Noel Streatfeild
The Bookshop, Penelope Fitzgerald
The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, Jeanne Birdsall
One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Dodie Smith
Here's what I'm currently in the middle of:
Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson (for the Victorian Celebration)
God's Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible, Adam NicolsonElizabeth and Her German Garden, Elizabeth von Arnim (for the Victorian Celebration)
Wives and Daughters, Elizabeth Gaskell (I've been saving this one for my long trip home to visit my mom; it also qualifies for the Victorian Celebration)
I'm very sleepy so it's off to bed with me! I hope everyone had lovely weekends. I found a wonderful new apartment for the next five to six years - what did you do?
