Last book finished

Cranford & Other Stories by Elizabeth C. Gaskell

A really great collection of Mrs Gaskell’s shorter stores which I really loved. You can read my thoughts on it here.

Currently reading

Mother Tongue: The Story of the English Language by Bill Bryson

This is not as funny as Notes from a Small Island or Notes from a Big Country, but it’s full of interesting trivia. I am actually enjoying all the references to the complicated and sometimes illogical spelling of some English words that often trouble foreign people, it’s good to know I’m not alone.

Next on the TBR list

The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber

Ok, this time I really intend to read this. I was rather troubled with the strange title, but luckily I found this enlightening article about it.
