Kindling

I could not resist the Kindle daily deal from Amazon today:

Night Waking by Sarah Moss

On a desolate Hebridean island, historian Anna Bennett has a book to write. She also has an insomniac toddler, a precocious seven-year-old and an absent husband. Night Waking is a deeply moving and darkly funny story of islanders, maternal ambivalence and hidden histories.

A bit close to home, maybe. We’ll see. For 99p, I cannot go very far wrong. 🙂

Currently on my Kindle: A Journal of the Plague Year, written by a citizen who continued all the while in London by Daniel Defoe

Presently Audible: The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood. I am loving every moment of this. Atwood is my favourite author and there are no disappointments here. It is a first person narrative, telling Homer’s Odyssey from Penelope’s perspective. It is sharp and witty. Beautifully read by Laural Merlington, who sucessfully delivlines and the content between them. It is an absolute delight. (Possibly works best in audio format, due the treatment of the Chorus.)

On the bedside table:The Intentional Spinner (Book & DVD) by Judith MacKenzie McCuin

Video: Spinning for Lace Margaret Stove (more of which, later)
What are you reading? and in what form?
