IMWAYR-06/02/2017

Hey everyone, it's time for another weekly reading update, that's co-hosted by unleashingreaders.com and teachmentortexts.com.

I'm afraid I don't have much to report this week. I'd picked up "Tess of the D'urbervilles" by Thomas Hardy last week, but unfortunately I'm returning the book to the library. It's written in English of the "yester years" as they say, and I find it too taxing to read. If I can't find another copy, I might issue the book for the summer holidays.

I'm currently reading "The Hollow" by Agatha Christie. This novel is about a murder with a seemingly obvious suspect.... that's never how it turns out, is it?

I'm looking forward to starting "Ice Station Zebra" by Allistair MacLean. I'd read another book of his which I didn't quite enjoy, but this one seems to have considerably better ratings and reviews.

  1. I love it when people abandon a book that doesn't work for them. Life is too short and there are so many books to read. I thought I had read every Agatha Christie, but this one is new to me!

  2. I am always impressed by Ms. Christie's productivity - every time I think I've read her entire collection, I discover something new to add to the list! Which is a good thing, because I often find myself returning to the classics when I need to bust myself out of a reading slump.

  3. I think I have a collection of Agatha Christie novels that I haven't gotten around to reading yet. Hopefully, soon.
