Lazy Sunday Thoughts

I surprised myself this week by starting and finishing two books! Short books, but still books: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Wide Sargasso Sea. I’m very happy about this. I had such a terrible book drought. I’ve only read 28 books this year. For me, this is bad. I’m hoping that this sudden desire to read stays with me. I’m actually looking forward to new releases and last week I visited the bookstore and got that old feeling. You know that one, where you want to drool over the pretty covers and touch all the books. That’s not just me, right? With fall coming, I can’t wait to start reading all the spooky books. I’m going to start on a list soon.

I have a lot to say about Wide Sargasso Sea, so expect a rambling review of that. The book is Jean Rhys’s response to Jane Eyre. It will be a spoilery review. While reading it, I remembered that Thug Notes had some thoughts on Jane Eyre. I thought I’d share that today. Thug Notes are entertaining analyses of classic books from Sparky Sweets, PhD. I learned something about Jane and Bertha, actually. I should warn you that he gives the away the whole plot so don’t watch if you haven’t read it!

Other than that, we’re getting the girl all ready for another year of school. Yep, it’s that time again. Just one more week.

  1. We all get in a book slump at times. Great that you got two books done.

    What grade will your daughter be in?

    ENJOY your week.

  3. I have Jane Eyre on my nightstand and twice, I have been too lazy to go downstairs to get the book I was reading so I started reading little chunks at night. Can't believe I have waited so long to read it.

  4. You are not alone in that feeling of walking into a bookstore! I do it too!

    I have not yet read Jane Eyre, but am hoping to this Fall.
