Mailbox Monday / It's Monday What are you reading?


Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Let Them Read Books This week no new books came into my house which will help me read those which are around.

Am combining Mailbox Monday with It's Monday what are you Reading hosted by Book Journey..
I have not been able to finish both books which I started reading which is strange for me. Middlemarch is one which is slow going but one I am determined to finish. The second book which I am 30 pages in is Portrait of a Lady. I am finding the latter more interesting than the former - despite rave reviews on Middlemarch it is slow going for me.

Have finished quite a few books and reviews are due. One of them is the wonderful The House of the Wind and the other is an Angela Thirkell book.

I am leaving for Melbourne once again visiting the children for Christmas. Looking forward to lots of new books at the Carnegie library.

I hope you're able to finish off your books. I've always wanted to read Middlemarch but not so much if it's slow going. I hope you have a wonderful visit for Christmas!

Have a great trip to Melborne. Maybe you'll be able to get some extra reading done on the journey.

I have yet to read Middlemarch as I am not sure it would be for me. I will look forward to your thoughts when you have finished as to whether it was worth the effort.

Have a great trip visiting your children!

Well, Middlemarch is a door stopper! I bought it at a library book sale a couple of years ago but haven't gotten up the courage to even pick it up and look at it! Enjoy your week!
