High Summer Read-a-Thon
Posted by JaneGS
I'm participating in my first official read-a-thon, though my family tells me my life is one big read-a-thon, but then it takes one to know one!
Michelle at The True Book Addict is hosting the High Summer Read-a-Thon. And since I plan on reading all week, when I'm not working, gardening, or cooking anyway...here goes.
I've just started The Shape of Water by Andrea Camilleri as part of my Reading up on Italy project. It takes place on Sicily and is a murder mystery.
In the same vein, I'm also reading The Agony and the Ecstasy by Irving Stone. Michelangelo is just heading back to Florence from Rome in order to win the commission to carve David. I am absolutely loving this book!
I'm also listening to Demelza, by Winston Graham, trying to keep ahead of the PBS/BBC mini-series currently airing. Loving it, just like I loved book one, Ross Poldark, in the series. If you haven't joined the blog tour for both books, check it out here...fabulous prizes at stake!
Looking forward to hearing what fellow read-a-thoners are reading.
