A Work in Progress



Adventures in (mostly) reading, and (sometimes) needlework and other artsy endeavors...

A Few Bits & Bobs for the Weekend

2018-02-16T10:00:00-06:00

Just a few odds and ends to start the weekend off with. I had hoped to catch up on writing about a few books I recently finished but the week has been busy and not only has my reading time...



February NYRB: All for Nothing

2018-02-14T10:00:00-06:00

Time for a little fanfare as my newest NYRB subscription book came in the mail yesterday. I knew I would not be finished with the January selection, Eileen Chang's Little Reunions, but I am actually quite pleased with my progress...



Teaser Tuesday: Chocolat

2018-02-13T15:39:24-06:00

One of my all-time favorite reads is Chocolat by Joanne Harris. I have read the book multiple times and am returning to it once again now. It is a comfort read for me, but I also think it is a...



State of the Nightstand: February 11

2018-02-11T21:43:25-06:00

Just one book shifted out and finished and another novel by Anita Brookner to take its place (I want to read my way through her books and we will see how many I can read this year). Plus a new...



February 9: Weekend Reading Notes

2018-02-09T08:00:00-06:00

I really wish I had a sunny, warm reading photo to share today, but this is closer to reality. Even though it is a snowy picture, there is something very inviting about it. It's going to be a good weekend...



A London Child of the 1870s, Molly Hughes

2018-02-07T16:00:00-06:00

The world as seen through the eyes of a child is always an interesting one, and memoirs written from that perspective even if written from the vantage point of adulthood are amongst my favorites. A London Child of the 1870s...



Teaser Tuesday: The Public Image

2018-02-06T15:34:15-06:00

I mentioned that I hope this year to have a Virago Modern Classic or Persephone on the go and on my night stand this year. Since I have finished my first Persephone of the year (and hope to write about...



State of the Nightstand: February 4

2018-02-04T20:46:01-06:00

A new month. A tiny bit of a reshuffle. A couple of books finished and rotated out. Fresh blood. Progress on old blood. A potential reread and that might the the Muriel Spark I settle on (or I might pick...



And the Other (new) February Reads

2018-02-02T07:52:51-06:00

Goodbye January and so nice to see you February, though the cold is continuing here with a nice gusty Arctic blast to start the month. At least now, however, it's easier to think that 'next month is the start of...



February Prompt: Long Ago and Far Away!

2018-02-01T07:36:20-06:00

Last month for my prompt I had a book in mind so I just grabbed it and started reading and there was no agonizing over a book choice. This month I have a few books in mind for my 'long...
