A Book I'd Love To Read

I'd really love to read Ruth Goodman's new book, about How to Be A Victorian.  It sounds fascinating.  I'd love to see some her shows, too,  I just love this kind of stuff!

When I was a kid, I really wanted to work at the local heritage museum on Long Island, Bethpage Village.  When I grew up, I found out working there was truly a privilege, and that there actually is a waiting list!  Dreams...

The Tutor

Well, I've been busy.  Moving, working, etc.  But now, I'm reading this:

Among other things of course.
But this one is exciting!  Will Shakespeare!  Thi is an advanced reader copy, not due out until next year.

Other books I'm reading are Green Darkness by Anya Seton, just out of curiosity, and Ian McEwan's The Children Act.

And while tis has not been a banner year for me as far as quantity of reading is concerned, I did read some fantastic books.  Next year, will be even better, I hope.  I'm really looking forward to Kate Atkinson's spin off of Life After Life, God in the Ruins.
