Weekend reads and keeping warm...

After ridiculous temperatures for the last few weeks -- 90 at 9am! -- we have a nor'easter blowing in, so it's cold and gray and rainy. A perfect fall day! If it were fall!

While my wife is away on a business trip, I'm hunkering down with this beast for the weekend: The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker.

It's almost 600 pages which is quite appealing to me -- I think I'm just going to curl up and read the rainy weekend away! (I suppose I'll clean up the house, too, so my wife doesn't cry upon her return on Sunday.)

What are you reading this weekend?

  1. Reading sounds like the perfect way to spend a dreary weekend.

    1. So heavenly! I just made a sandwich, refilled my coffee, and am piled up with cats.

  2. This sounds like a good book to curl up with on a rainy weekend. I'll most likely be doing the same thing - Im listening to The Age of Desire and so far so good. Hope you have a relaxing weekend!

    1. Oh, Darlene, that book was so good! So surprising -- maddening at times! -- but in the end, I really enjoyed it! A very surprising look at Wharton!

  3. Rainy weekends are so perfect for reading. I've just started The Year of the Gadfly. As you know, I'm not usually one for books about teen angst, but the journalistic element in this one sucked me in! Have a relaxing weekend!

  4. That sounds like a perfect weekend. I'm not sure how much cleaning I would do if I had the house to myself! :)

  8. A good book for this rainy weekend! I just finished Hotel du Lac by Anita Brookner and will start Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver.

  9. I am reading this a week late because my week was so hellish. I just didn't have time to hit Feedly. But, I've been reading! I finished The Never List. I had some quibbles with the ending. We'll see how long it takes me to write-up the review! Someone needs to light a fire under my butt!

    I am also reading The Curiosity and I am on the verge of going absolutely ga-ga over it. The Last Summer of the Camperdowns is also being read but it's not pulling me in.

    The weather has been glorious here in SoCal! Hovering between 75-80 in August??? Unheard of.
