Mailbox Monday is being hosted for March by Diary of an Eccentric.
Just one book in my Mailbox and one I purchased myself. It is a Diana Gabaldon one and for the life of me I cant remember the title! I've left it behind in Rozella to read over the next weekend.
I am still in the midst of reading Middlesex - I'm half way through but finding it a bit slow going now.
I am also reading Khuswant Singh's Collection - this is a big book but half way through that as well.
On a non blogging note, we are gearing for the Singhalese and Hindu New Year which falls on April 12th/13th. Though I do not personally celebrate the whole of Sri Lanka almost shuts down for the week following the festival. Practically all the people who work for us celebrate the festival and just prior to the festival tea factories and rubber factories close as well. We also have our own litle festival prior to the actual one with gift exchanges and lots of nice food being consumed! However it involves a lot of preparatory work in getting the food rations organized so that each one gets exactly the same as everyone else and no one feels slighted! The work in itself is not difficult just detailed and one I still enjoy after so many years. The festival also coincides every year with Easter which is also celebratory of a new life - so a busy month ahead.
