I realize I’m a couple days late with this, but I did find some time to read last month in spite of freelance projects, a trip to NYC and a number of birthday celebrations.
I’m about halfway through this book and it is proving to be the best and by far the most Biblical book I’ve read on dating relationships. It has convicted, challenged and encouraged me. I hope it will help me navigate dating in the future. I may write up a brief review once I’ve finished it.
Like a good cookie, sometimes you just need something sweet and delicious. I’m a huge fan of murder mysteries and this was given to me for my birthday. I breezed through it in just a few evenings and have no regrets. My brain needed the downtime. I’m also looking forward to trying out some of the cookie recipes in the book.
Regency period English prose is a beast to get through, but Jane Austen’s characters are so delighful … okay, Mr. and Mrs. Elton are not delightful, but most everyone else is. I didn’t realize Emma’s brother-in-law factors so much more prominently in the book since he is barely seen at all in film. Also Mr. George Knightley is even more wonderful in the book.
Many works of literature are available for free and this was one of the ones I added to my reader. I’ve only just started reading it and it is impossible to not read Bertie Wooster’s lines in the voice of Hugh Laurie. Who, in case you don’t know, is not only a wonderful actor, but an accomplished musician.
