Sunday Salon – 15 April

IMG_1844It’s been a very quiet reading week for me. I had a few days where I didn’t read at all as I was busy with other things and I certainly didn’t finish anything, but I have high hopes for the coming week.

Currently reading:

  • Still in the middle of The Sale of the Late King’s Goods; now that I have seen the second of the Carolingian exhibitions I want to push on with this book
  • New York 2140 – barely started but already enjoyable
  • The Girls of Slender Means – the next of my Muriel Spark reads, I might even finish this later today (though The Last Jedi is calling out for a re-watch!)

Books bought:

None. Nada. The buying ban holds, though I think I have a couple of Kindle pre-orders coming up. But temptation has been resisted 🙂

Other stuff:

We went to the Charles II exhibition in the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace. A wonderful selection of paintings and objects which I will write about more in a future post. It is entirely possible we had lunch in a Danish bakery in Victoria and bought some really disgustingly tasty pastries, but I can’t comment on that!

Lots happening this week and here’s to finishing a couple of books!
