Despite quite a bit of travelling this week I only managed to finish one book: The Telling of Lies by Timothy Findley which is one of my big re-reads.

But the opportunity to go book shopping in Glasgow plus some temptations via the internet meant that the following new books arrived in the Bride’s home this week:

  • The Storyteller by Antonia Michaels – “a spellbinding tale of suspense, danger and transformative love”
  • Mudwoman by Joyce Carol Oates – “extraordinarily intense, racking and resonant”
  • HP Lovecraft by Michel Houellebecq – “indispensable reading for anyone interested in Lovecraft”
  • Fated by Benedict Jacka – Camden. Mysterious relics in the British Museum. Probability Mages
  • Spitalfields Life by The Gentle Author – the book of the blog, a lovely thing in itself

I am currently thinking of signing up to Carl’s Once Upon a Time challenge, and also the 24 Hour readathon in April. I’ll post on those separately once I’ve (a) made my mind up and (b) started the appropriate book piles.

And at least the sun has been shining; spring is just around the corner.
