What are you reading?

Photobucket

Many of you know that I have a special place in my heart for classic literature. I have actually been working my way through the classics for many many years. You may also know that I have a special place in my heart for zombies. My husband is well aware of this and managed to touch on both loves with one of his gifts to me this holiday season when he gifted me Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith.

I think you can probably guess what it's about. Grahame-Smith has re-worked the entire novel to include zombies. I read through the book in a couple of days, good time for someone with a little one! If you like zombies and the classics, then this is a must read. Ha ha!

Lest you think I read only zombie books let me tell you that I have moved on to Home, by Julie Andrews. I LOVE Julie Andrews. I am also looking over Handmade Home, by Amanda Blake Soule. What have you been reading?

Aaaah, reading. What am I NOT reading is the question? But, of interest from last month was Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracey Kidder.

So happy to see how beautifully you're settling in with Cordelia. She's so gorgeous! And, how absolutely wonderful that you can continue blogging and having dates with Eric! What precious gifts!! Been thinking of you and so happy to have a moment to reconnect!!

I've been reading your blog...does that count?

No, I'm reading Roald Dahl's short stories, not his children's stuff. It's dark and morbid, just how I like it.

I'm reading The Hobbit (again). I love it...and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The last book I finished was the Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which I highly recommend.

I read a lot, whenever I can find the time. I read mostly classics as a teenager but now I'm interested in environmental literature, biographies and psychology. I also enjoy good fantasy and scifi and have written some myself.

I am currently reading A farewell to arms - Ernest Hemingway whenever I can sneak in a few moments. I love love love Hemingway.

My favorite authors are F Scott Fitzgerald and Haruki Murakami. Zombies sound interesting too though! :)

I'm reading an Agatha Christie... perfect for cold dark winter nights!

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' sounds waaaaay cool Maria. It made me giggle! And it would be perfectly OK to just read zombie books!! How awesome is Eric for finding that book for you.

Great minds think alike... I'm reading Amanda Blake Soule's 'The Creative Family'. I'm feeling very inspired. Look out 2010...!!!

Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family xxx

I've seen that book and actually thought of you guys and your zombie love! Ha! Hope it's a good read.

I'm reading The Pig and I by Rachel Toor (all about her relationships in her life with her animals and men and how they converge and intersect) and PETA's Vegan College Cookbook (yeah, sometimes I'm lazy and just want to open cans). My cousin got me When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris for Christmas, so I'm excited to read that next.
