As is so often the case, my eyes have proved to be bigger than my stomach, and despite reading every available moment, I realise I’m not going to get through all the books I set myself! Therefore, A Week of Espionage will be shifted from this coming week to next, beginning on 13th May and running through to the 19th. I don’t expect anyone was exactly holding their breath in anticipation, but if you wanted to join in there is at least another week to pick up a book in. Though really, given that I can’t keep up with my own reading, I hardly expect anyone else to!
The Slaves of Golconda’s next book will be The Leopard by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, which is a book I’m really looking forward to, as I’ve wanted to read it for ages and ages. We’ll be posting reviews on the 8th June and please do join us if you’d like to.
I’m also hoping to read this month Knausgaard’s first volume of My Struggle, entitled A Death in the Family (in the UK), Louise Erdrich’s new novel, The Round House, and Shirley Jackson’s classic We Have Always Lived In The Castle. And anything else I can squeeze in!
And many apologies, my manic reading has put me behind in all other online activities, including commenting on your posts and replying to emails. I will catch up very soon, I do hope.
