A Work in Progress

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

The Midwich Cuckoos, John Wyndham


There's something strange going on in the sleepy village of Midwich (sleepy villages are never quite what you expect them to be, don't you agree?). For the narrator, Richard, and his wife Janet, he's only happy that his birthday happened...

Teaser Tuesday: The Human Flies


Ah. One of bookdom's eternal questions for mystery-lovers. I've finished my current mystery, now do I pick up the next book in the series or do I start something entirely new? It's such a dilemma. I know it is early...

Goodbye Piccadilly, Cynthia Harrod-Eagles


Cynthia Harrod-Eagles knows well how to tell a longstanding, epic family saga! While I am still stuck in Restoration England with the Morlands, maybe I will do better at keeping up with the Hunter family since I am nearly still...

The Friday of a Long Weekend Mishmash


If there is one good thing about a long holiday weekend that is going to end with a snowy, sleety, wintry mix of weather, it is . . . I have a perfect excuse to stay indoors and read. Actually,...

Book to Big Screen: A Reading Wishlist


Moviemakers rely on books a lot for inspiring material from which to make their movies, don't they? When done well this is a good thing. If lucky the movie will live up to a good book's reputation, sometimes the movie...

January NYRB: Samskara

Teaser Tuesday: Persuasion


Persuasion is my most favorite Jane Austen novel. I mean, what's not to love about this story--a 'mature' heroine, past her youthful prime (though I would personally not feel past my prime at twenty-seven!), a dashing naval officer returned to...

The Third Miss Symons, F.M. Mayor


Nature vs. nurture was my first thought on finishing F.M. Mayor's The Third Miss Symons, which was first published in 1913 and reissued as a Virago Modern Classic in 1980. Is Henrietta Symons, third daughter and fifth child of a...

January 6: Weekend Reading Notes


A new year and a new header. I am looking for some other new suitable bookish/reading women/men (not so many of the latter it seems) pictures to use. Don't you feel like you are peeking over her shoulder to see...

A New Year, a New List of Coming Books!


Last year's books have been read (save a very few) and written about and now tidied away. The calendar has flipped to a new year and one book (however slender) has already been enjoyed and shared, so I think it...
