Today, aside from chapters 53-55, we talk about accordions, my love of the word “odious,” (isn’t it great?!) and I finally take Amy up on her suggestion weeks and weeks ago!
Namely–I just read and really dug To Shield The Queen , by Fiona Buckley. Actually, I didn’t just read that. I read the first three books in the series.
I also have finished the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, but my books are in boxes so I can’t read you any brief tempting bits from that. However, if you love books, and have a wicked sense of humor, The Eyre Affair, et al, are for you!
Buy them. Now!
You will not find a more compellingly odd, laugh-aloud funny, and brilliant set of books out there.
I’m thinking that instead of a poll, I just want everyone to look at the librivox.org catalog and tell me what you like. I’ll take the one with the most emails. I think I’ll putter around with some of the short works first, just to give you some variety, then dive into another long book.
Email me your thoughts at MamaOKnits AT Gmail DOT com.
As always, Pride and Prejudice is narrated by Annie Coleman. Intro music provided by GarageBand.com which connected me with Joshua Christian’s “Chasing Hiro.â€
