I had been trying to keep the number of books I had going at just two but that little phase didn’t last too long. Currently I have some great reads going on.
I’m still holding steady at page 43 of Don Quixote. Sad, I know. I haven’t picked this one up in more than a week but I’m really going make an effort to read some more of it this weekend.
The Hummingbird’s Daughter is all kinds of wonderful but I didn’t want to take it on my trip either as it’s kind of a chunkster so I am still at about the half way point in this book.
Monday I have my Murder on Mondays book group so I had to start The Murder of Roger Ackroyd a Hercule Poirot mystery by Agatha Christie. Actually if anyone has a good web site on Agatha Christie let me know. Our group will be having a trivia contest and there will be prizes – free books! I need to get up to speed on some Agatha facts.
The book I did take with me to Monterrey is my third choice for the Once Upon a Time Challenge, To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis. I was excited to start this book as I’ve always heard great things about it but I will admit that it took me a while to get into it. It could have been though that I kept getting distracted. Anyway once I finally caught on I started enjoying it and I’m past the half way point.
Know what else is interesting? In the Hummingbird’s Daughter one character is reading Don Quixote and in To Say Nothing of the Dog one of the characters mentions following clues like Hercule Poirot. I love those kind of connections.
