Finals week is over; time for 3 weeks of relaxation and pleasure reading. First up: "The House of Mirth" by Edith Wharton. What are you reading right now?

I just finished Cutting for Stone, which was very good. Forgot the author though. Now I started the House At Riverton by Kate Morton.

I just finished the latest Jack Reacher book, Night School by Lee Child. Not sure where I'm going next. I'll probably get back to Ed Yong's I Contain Multitudes. I see Ebola1 is still working on it, too.

America's war for the greater middle east. It's a military history on US involvement for the last 60 years in the middle east

Wall Street and FDR: The True Story of How Franklin D. Roosevelt Colluded with Corporate America, by Anthony C. Sutton. It's pretty good, I'm about 1/4 into it.

The Mermaid Chair. Almost done with that one and then I'm moving onto All the Light We Cannot See and Wuthering Heights.

I read Wuthering Height over Thanksgiving break...great book! The first few chapters are slow, but once you get into it, you won't be able to put it down. Now I really want to read Jane Eyre.

I did! I wish I hadn't seen spoilers before reading it though...the beginning of the book had an introduction written by someone else and they basically gave away the entire book! 😠

The intro to my version of Wuthering Heights did the same thing...fortunately I skipped it.

Yeah, I just started it last night and saw it had an introduction as well. At least I knew to skip it this time!
