The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate. Nancy Mitford. Am I the only one who's never read a book by a Mitford?
Darkmans. Nicola Barker. I know some thought this one should have beat out the Enright for the Booker.
The God Delusion. Richard Dawkins. I'm glad I waited for the paperback; Dawkins responds to negative reviews the hardback received in a new preface. No mention of Marilynne Robinson's smackdown, however. . .
The Country of the Pointed Firs. Sarah Orne Jewett. For one of my many reading challenges.
Goldberg: Variations. Gabriel Josipovici. Josipovici's name has shown up on various blogs the last couple of years and in a manner that's always left me feeling intimidated. I decided to see if that intimidation is warranted.
An Absolute Gentleman. R.M. Kinder. A review copy. I've read the first few pages and am waiting for time to pull a marathon reading session. I have an impression it's that sort of book.
The People of the Book. Geraldine Brooks. It's gorgeous!
