On Wednesday, I started one of the books that I am going to teach this semester: Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South. I read it many years ago, right before my oldest son was born. Quite aside from the role it plays in the make-up of my course, I had forgotten how much I enjoy the novel.
At this rate, I'm not likely to finish any of the three books I'm working on--I'd come closest with Frank's book--but that's fine with me. I'm just enjoying the reading.
Here's the numbers breakdown:
Wednesday: 63 pages
Total pages so far: 163
Books finished: none
I'm reading: Dorothy Dunnett, Niccolo Rising; Joseph Frank, Dostoyevsky: Years of Ordeal, 1850-1859; Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South.
