This book, Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters may yet go down in history as one of my slowest reads ever.
But not because it is "slow" -- or not a good novel. It's really captivating and terrific. It's ME that is slow!
I just haven't been reading as much as usual.
As 2013 kicks in, I hope my current reading lapse is not a sign of things to come. Last year was overall a slow one for me, [not an encouraging signal?] having read a total of only 38 books.
I know for some of you out there, you read that many in a couple of months. But I'm slow lately.
So don't get me wrong.
It's not Sarah Waters's fault… not at all. I hope she does not see this blog and stop at the title portion of it! No, no, I think she is fabulous. I love every book of hers I have read, Affinity being one of my favorite books ever. But a combination of early-onset senility and general distraction has me a bit book-stymied lately.
