In which we try to get back on track with reading...
On Wednesday night, my wonderful K arrived home with a bright pink beanbag for me - we'd talked a while ago about the need for extra seating (particularly while the front room is being redecorated) and I'd identified a pink beanbag but we never got around to going to get it, and I had quite forgotten about it. As K is rarely spontaneous, it made me incredibly happy! Although Bernard has temporarily appropriated it as an excellent spot to sit on during the day while we are out at work (although he really requires a new tank top as I think his Christmassy one clashes somewhat). Anyway, now that I have a decent reading spot, I am determined to try to get back on track with reading. As I wrote in my last post, being reunited with my unpacked book collection, has spurred me towards lots of rereading, the familiar book being profoundly comforting whilst feeling so displaced. But I want to move onwards. I have some exciting books tucked away for my wedding trip, but I don't want to wait another 5 weeks (yes, it is now that close!) to get my reading mojo back.
So, I mainly want to ask for help. I wasn't so good at keeping up with blogs in the early part of June, and I'd love some recommendations of good reading. If you're reading this, please do let me know the best book that you've read in the last couple of months - whether it's new or old or a reread of an old favourite - and perhaps I can seek inspiration that way!
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
