Monday Round Up (05.17.10)
“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.
Finished: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Still Reading: Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
I took a short break from AK to start rereading the Harry Potter books. For the last couple years I’ve kept saying that I want to reread the entire series, but it’s one thing to say it and a totally different thing to actually do it. I had forgotten just how wonderful the first book is and how quickly J.K. Rowling draws you into the wizarding world.
Book ban update: 3 weeks with no new books! But, I did get some new music. I can’t remember the last time I actually went out and bought a physical copy of an album. So, I got two :)
I also borrowed the 2006 BBC adaptation of Jane Eyre from the library. I’ve watched the first half of this 4-hour miniseries, and unfortunately am not enjoying it quite as much as the 1983 adaptation. Do you have a favourite Jane Eyre adaptation?
What are you reading? Did any new books find their way into your possession?
