We finished Anna Karenina on Sunday. We loved it. I knew nothing of the story, accept that it was long. I was pleasantly surprised to find that we both found it very interesting, captivating and enjoyable. It is fun reading books with Cree. It almost makes them more gratifying because we get caught up in the story and talk about it over our lunch break. It's more fun reading when you get to enjoy it with someone. Our next book is Jack Karouac's Big Sur. Big Sur was our favorite stop on our honeymoon, so we thought it was only right that we read it together. On a side note, does anyone know why the book is called Anna Karenina when the character in the book is Anna Karenin? Bothered me the whole time.
Last week I finished Atonement and then this morning I finished At Home in Mitford. Mitford was recommended to me by my mama, my grandmother and my nana. I must admit, it took me about 100 pages to get into it, but once I did I enjoyed the story. It was cute, sweet and quaint...one of the those warm fuzzy books that makes you smile while you read. It even made me want a dog...and I'm not really a dog person.
