I'm jetting off to Costa Rica again tomorrow for 12 days. I have, however, been told by my boyfriend in no uncertain terms there won't be much time for reading. I'm currently working my way through William Boyd's 'Restless', but I imagine I'll finish that before it's time to board the plane.
I read 'Any Human Heart' by Boyd last summer and really enjoyed it, so no surprises, this volume is working out very nicely for me and my reading tastes... unlike when I read Tom Jones... A spy novel I can actually get on with! *shock*
I've been recommended this book by a former colleague and borrowed a copy off my mum (who also enjoyed it), so it looks promising for what Steinbeck called his 'magnum opus - his greatest novel. Steinbeck stated "it has everything in it I have been able to learn about my craft or profession in all these years." I look forward to it!
I'm leaving early tomorrow morning, hence my weekly blog post is on a Thursday instead of a Friday. I'll see you in two Fridays time!
