This week’s Musing Mondays asks
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
Reading habits: drinking tea while reading!
Books I recently bought: when at the most beautiful cafe/bookshop possible (Blue Mist at Wentworth Falls), we browsed the shelves; The Book Accumulator bought I Capture the Castle because Mini-Me and I weren’t going to let him out of the shop until he did, and I bought The Boat by Nam Le, a short story collection by a refugee who came to Australia; his refugee experiences have influenced his writing. I’ve heard very good things about this author and this book, and I have always been interested in refugee policy in Australia so this should be a good read.
Reading right now: The Hangman’s Holiday by Dorothy L. Sayers – having picked it up at the library after Alex recommended Ms. Sayers. I’m really enjoying it – much more than I enjoyed The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie. Lord Peter Wimsey is just as whimsical a detective as Hercule Poirot, but a little easier to get along with, I think! I was very grateful to have this in my bag this morning and to have a seat on the train when my train was subject to extensive delays due to faulty trains and line suspension…
