I've been re-reading some old favourites; A Case of Lone Star, by Kinky Friedman (a detective story, of sorts), and The Monkey's Mask by Dorothy Porter (also a detective story, but written in verse, and set in Australia). Continuing the nostalgic mood, I've started listening to Emily of New Moon by L.L. Montgomery on audiobook.
I am struggling to finish books at the moment. Eagerly awaiting the new Herman Koch to hopefully remedy this habit. Listened to Love, etc by Julian Barnes on a weekend away in the car, and really enjoyed that. Listening to Status Anxiety by Alain de Botton - it's interesting but I don't think I suffer from Status anxiety so I find myself disagreeing with what he says (how people think) but my husband who read and loved the book, disagrees with me and says I just think differently to most people. I did just finish his What we could learn from Proust and loved that - even though I'd only read Swann's Way.
