Visit to the library

Sunday was my visit to the library.

I wasn’t so lucky with my last batch but,

 honestly,

 that might have been my state of mind.

My mood has improved lately,

 I’m trying to relax and not take things so seriously.

It’s a work in progress.

I couldn’t get into the Somerset Maugham so,

 you gotta know I was in a weird place,

I love Maugham.

Also I found the Muriel Spark trite,

I’m telling you,

 bad mood.

I’ll take them both back out this winter,

 when hopefully I will have clearer perspective.

Took out another Maugham this time around, The Narrow Corner.

A book I have been wanting to read for a while,

 Small Island by Andrea Levy,

 I have heard good things.

A Quebecois book by one of our best authors, Victor-Lévy Beaulieu.

He is a fantastic writer who would undoubtedly be more famous if he was French or American.

 Lastly, Les Laisons Dangereuses which I have been wanting to read for years.

Still have waiting in my pile a book a friend gave me and a loan by another friend.

Will update soon.

I think I’ll start with The Narrow Corner.

Later girls and as always thanks for being there.
