stats, The pile, week in books

The Week In Books: May 5 – May 11

Only two days at work this week – and it was looking like a really bad week for progress down the to-read pile until I put some effort in over the weekend to improve the situation…

Read:

Tales of the Jazz Age by F Scott Fitzgerald

Sure of You by Armistead Maupin

Lavender Lady by Carola Dunn

Every Woman for Herself by Trisha Ashley (review)

The Viceroy’s Daughters by Anne de Courcey

Started:

Night of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle

A Delicate Truth by John le Carré

Beautiful for Ever by Helen Rappaport

Still reading:

Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe

Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake

More books
Some of this week’s purchases – one of which never made it to the to-read pile…

On the plus side, I finally finished Tales of the Jazz Age after making a concerted effort not to go and start something new until I’d finished with it.  And the Anne de Courcey was a book that I borrowed from my mum *literally* years ago so I’m really pleased to have read that so I could give it back to her.  On the downside, the physical pile isn’t getting any smaller – as two books this week were from the kindle and that was before the Incident in the charity shops and the fact that the new Trisha Ashley came out – and was in two for £7 at the supermarket… On top of that I may have made an unscheduled stop in The Works in Leamington Spa on Saturday night and bought another one! At least five of the six were books that I already had earmarked to read on my Goodreads list.  And I said last week that I wanted to get the number of books on the go at once down – and I have. By one. I’m grasping at straws aren’t I?!
