Well, Reading Buddies, here we are at our last (at least, for now) wrap-up. How did you like Possession by A.S. Byatt? It seemed, to me, an acceptable way to close out the past year and a half of reading together. I wasn’t totally sold on it at the halfway point, but it . . . → Read More: Reading Buddies Wrap-Up: “Possession” by A.S. Byatt
Hey Reading Buddies! Welcome to the discussion post for Possession by A.S. Byatt.
It’s a bit of a chunkster, and kind of dense at that, so I’m making my way through rather slowly. I’m about 200 pages in, right in the middle of the Ash/LaMotte letters, which I’m finding kind of hard to get . . . → Read More: Reading Buddies Discussion: “Possession” by A.S. Byatt

Just a reminder that there’s still plenty of time to jump on board for our June read, which is Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. I started it last night, and I’m definitely interested already. It’s my first of Brooks’ books.

Okay guys. I totally failed this month. After giving myself permission to skip around in Moments of Being a couple of weeks ago, I proceeded to get distracted. I had a crazy last week at my job. I’ve spent lots of time helping with a wedding I’m in later this month. But really, the . . . → Read More: Reading Buddies Wrap-Up: “Moments of Being” by Virginia Woolf

Okay, guys. I have a confession to make. I’m struggling with Moments of Being.
It’s not that I find the reading hard. I’m actually kind of shocked by how easily I find myself slipping into Woolf’s writing. She . . . → Read More: Reading Buddies Discussion: “Moments of Being” by Virginia Woolf
