I signed up for Begorrathon – reading Irish authors in March – and the Villette Readalong, which I was doing just fine with until this section and now I’m way behind. I do intend to catch up. Hopefully, my intentions will be more than intentions this month. Last month I read half of one short Irish written book. That’s right half. Probably should have switched books, but I got more into it, finally, and I will finish it. John Banville’s The Book of Evidence. About a guy, supposedly a scientist, but there’s no evidence (ha!) of that in his character. He seems to be a drifting, horrible person, with no real reason for most of the things he does. This is based on a true story. But since it takes place completely in the narrator’s head — he’s filling the court in, supposedly, on what happened. Though no court would let him go on in this manner. I do wonder if any actual criminals would identify with this character.
Finish Book of Evidence
Do 5th and 6th parts of Villette
Read a fantasy or two for Once Upon a Time IX
Read a Trollope. Maybe The Way We Live Now.
And to think I didn’t sign up for all those challenges because I wanted to choose freely. Ha! Oh well. I enjoy readalongs and thons. It makes reading more friendly.
