When I visit the library, I can’t help myself – I am like a kid in a sweet shop. And I have heaped torture upon myself again by taking out too many books. What with the child and the job and the husband and the back, there’s not much time left for reading, and often when I get into bed, my eyes betray me and droop much too soon.
I had ordered Kate Atkinson’s new book and Peggy Riley’s Amity & Sorrow. Then I spied World War Z, which I am seeing this week, plus a book by Deborah Harkness which I’d been meaning to check out at some point.
So I gave in to temptation and, as a result, the bedside table is heaving. What to read first?!
