I was away last weekend and couldn't partake in the previous blog hop, so I'm happy to get a chance this week.
This week's Blog Hop question, as determined by Crazy-For-Books.com is "Tell us about the book you're currently reading"
For those of you that follow me, or else just glanced at my recent posts, you can see I'm primarily reading Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke. I'd seen the book in book stores and on my friends' shelves for awhile, but I didn't actually know much about it when I picked it up from the bookstore. Really the only thing I knew was the cover looked familiar and it was on the bargain table, my favorite table at any bookstore. I'm about half way through it and loving it!
Because Strange & Norrell is long and heavy, I've so far taken one break and re-read the play The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (abridged) by the Reduced Shakespeare Company which I can't recommend highly enough. I'm on my second copy after losing my first one during one of my many moves. I decided I couldn't go much longer without reading it again so I bought a new copy as soon as I found it.
I'm going to be taking a second break from Strange & Norrell so I can pick up the book I'm supposed to be reading for my book club What's My Name, Fool?: Sports and Resistance in the United States by Dave Zirin. I haven't found it in any bookstores yet but I'll be ordering a copy soon.
