Current books

I finally got The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society from the library today. I was surprised it was that fast, since I started at the end of a queue of about 200 people; they must have bought a several more copies. It even has a built-in book mark, one of those old-fashioned woven ribbons. :-) I am really going to enjoy this, having seen the Enemy at the Door series about the Nazi occupation of Guernsey this year.

[checks other queues] I'm now 27 of 54 for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and 13 of 18 for The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. They've obviously bought more of those too, seeing I started off at over 100 for each.

I'm in the middle of Maeve Binchy's Evening Class, one of two of hers picked up at that second-hand book fair a while back. I don't normally go for novels about everyday life and people, but I got them on the strength of the film Circle of Friends, and it's a delight, like that. I may have to read more of hers.
