"We understand our lives, or try to, by the stories we tell."
--Charles Baxter (Burning Down the House: Essays on Fiction)
This year I'm trying something different. I usually read books from a variety of authors - this year I'm working my way through all books by specific authors. Sort of losing myself in the world of their characters - one author at a time. Okay, okay - not one at a time because I must have at least two or three going at once or I get too lost, you know what I mean?I've fallen in love with Louise Penny's writing (and with her Inspector Gamache). Until the next in that series comes out, I'm working through all of PD James books. Why did I not read her before now???I just picked up the first in Henning Mankell's Wallander series. Yes, because of Kenneth Branagh - that man could get me to read anything. I don't have the means to travel much, so perhaps I am doing so through my choice of books. I also don't get to murder nearly enough, so there's that.
Oh my gosh, LibraryThing is the COOLEST thing ever! I'd never heard of it until now. Thanks for posting, Janet!!!
