A few summer reading notes:
(And a note: the vast majority of these are older books that I either received as gifts or bought awhile back and have been in the “to read” pile! The OUPs I got at The Strand in NYC for like, three dollars each! And yes, I generally prefer OUP–Oxford University Press–for ‘classics’.)
** The great Jane re-read continues, although I’m still on S&S. I need to get in gear and finish it, so that’s on the list for next week, and move into P&P.
**I just finished The Nesting Place: It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful, and highly recommend it, especially if you are a renter (like moi), who despairs of decorating well.
**I need to read Middlemarch this summer. I’ve been trying to read this now for almost ten years, and the time has come (the Walrus Said), so it’s going to happen.
** I am ALMOST DONE with The Wings of the Dove. Almost done, I tell you!
