Don’t have much to say on the reading front lately: have been busy with non-reading activities and also not feeling great. But The Biochemist and I stopped in at the local branch library’s book sale over the weekend. They had a fairly good selection of mass market paperbacks and a weird collection of older nonfiction and other media. We each left with three books.
Evelina by Frances Burney — an 18th century sentimental novel, precursor to the work of Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen.
A Game of Kings by Dorothy Dunnett — first of the Lymond books. I’ve borrowed this from the library before but never actually read it. The whole series was for sale, and at $0.50 would have been a bargain, but I didn’t feel like glomming without having read at least one book.
Chalice by Robin McKinley — I haven’t read anything of hers since Sunshine (which was also on sale in each of its incarnations/covers).
The Biochemist got a copy of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, and I can’t remember what else.
And that is all for SBD for now.
