I frequent two different book clubs.
I have to admit I almost force myself to participate in them because while I enjoy reading, I tend to gravitate towards authors that are -- well, dead.
The book clubs read more current literature which I feel I would ignore almost completely if it weren't for their picks.
I just finished Sandition by my perennial favorite author Jane Austen. It was a version that was completed by an anonymous writer since Austen died a mere 11 chapters in.
Not my favorite Austen book, but I did enjoy it.
I also just finished the audio book version of North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell. I mostly listened to it while working out.
However, as I got engrossed I found myself ignoring my family completely as I listened to it while performing such tasks as dishes after dinner.
The BBC film version of this movie is excellent.
I picked up an Edith Wharton book at the library and am going to tackle that next, but am looking to take up a more current novel as well.
What are you reading? What are your favorites?
