New Week of Reading

Started off the week “trying” to read The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson.  Ok, this was definitely not a book to read by picking up and putting down at work.  And as the first xxx number of pages is about the severe burns the main character received in a car accident was not enough, and his career as a porn star/director,  it was just ….. weird.  And I read weird.  But it just wasn’t for me.  I tried, but by the time the girl was introduced it had dragged on long enough.  I abandoned it.  Sorry, because I like gargoyles.

Then I was fortunate enough to find Hovering in Flight by Joyce Hinnefeld.

It had been recommended on another blog I was reading the other day (forget which one) and there it was on the shelf.  The book follows the life of an artist/activist Addie and her daughter, Scarlet.  I am about 70 pages into it and am really enjoying it.  Don’t know whether since it is about birds and birding, or art, or her field journals or a combination of all which appeals to me.  But the storyline so far is pretty good.

To follow this book up, is The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory. author of The Other Boleyn Girl.

I have read a couple of Philippa Gregory’s books and would like to read them all.  She is one of those authors I have on my back burner as a source of always having something to read.  Since this book is about Mary, Queen of Scots, it is fitting to be reading it as the Ren Faire is due to start at the end of the month.

And there are a couple of Stuart Woods I have not read yet under these books.  So I have enough to keep me occupied the next couple of weeks.

  1. Hi Judy! I am your new Journaling Partner! Looks like we have lots of the same interests and like a lot of the same books - and even belong to many of the same sites. I am working through Friday so may not be at the computer at home all of the time but can't wait to get started. First thing - what so you think of using a Moleskein Sketchbook - the large size (5" X 8.25"). Hope to be emailing you soon! Can't wait to hear your ideas.
