Hello, friends! How has your week been?

Mine was rather uneventful, filled with the usual work and chores and reading. I finished one book this week – Angela Thirkell’s High Rising, which I gobbled up and loved. After that, I turned to several other books, including I Remember You by Yrsa Sigurdardottir, a scary, unsettling story set in Iceland and Mrs. Tim of the Regiment, which I am having a hard time finishing.

I did a bit of research into books I can read to fill my Century of Books list and discovered that most of the books that qualify from my own shelves come from the thirties and forties – I didn’t realize I owned that many books from those eras. I started reading a book published in 1999, the last year of the century, The Music Lesson by Katharine Weber and thought it would be fun to read one from the first year of the century also so I put a hold on Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser which was published in 1900.

What did you read this week? Did you make progress on your challenges or goals?

Have a lovely Sunday!
