I knew I was going to be late starting because I spent the morning at a ceramics workshop and I wasn’t home until slightly after the readathon started. But I was later than planned. Making time to read is what’s important though
A Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich by
This is one of the 1001 books you must read before you die and I can see why this is the case. I felt like I learned something reading this book with it’s hard hitting subject matter. A worthy read but not a difficult one.
Oh Whistle And I’ll Come To You, My Lad by M.R. James audiobook, 50 minutes (44 pages approx in print) on TBR for a couple of years
This isn’t a book that I’d have chosen but it was given away free to all Audible members one Christmas several years ago. And I can’t resist a freebie. I’d been putting off listening to it because I’d heard it was a ghost story but it was creepy but not scary so it wasn’t a problem. I loved M.R James’ turn of phrase in this, especially right at the beginning. I’m glad to have this ticked off my TBR but it’s not something I’ll revisit and I doubt I’ll read more by the author.
