she is reading


nothing lasts forever by sidney sheldon

its great she says. three women, one investigates a murder, one gets murdered and the other sleeps her way to the top!!!! i should use more exclamation marks to get across the enthusiasm with which she describes her read. she's totally into it and doesn't do that 'you must read it' thing - for her the read is something she totally disappears into. talking to her gets a smile on my face tinged with regret that i don't seem to have that total absorption any more.

i do have another candidate for tonight's reader but the book she's reading is in russian. you should know what it's about she tells me. come on, i protest, i only learned a few words of russian when i was six. she laughs dismissively at this and tells me that she could tell me what she was reading but how would i know it was the truth. those bulgarians! lol

Oh to be immersed in fiction. I've a pile to read and just can't get round to it: too much to think about -it being the start of term- to let the immersion take over.

i adore this idea of the series you've started! and how touching your description, but with the usual doses of humour and detachment...

the plan is to catch people reading over the course of the year. i'm happy enough to do this at work for the moment but i may venture elsewhere as time goes by. trouble is so few people read, let alone in public
