What Are You Reading in January?

I’ve been busy this month, but not too busy to get my reading year off to a fairly fine start. This is typical of my reading habits, though. January is always one of my best bookish months.

      • Funny you should ask. I just read two books by Helene Hnaff. I love her writing and wit. Finished Butcher’s book and started on a Miss Fisher’s Mystery, as well. Next, The Duchess of Bloomsbury. by Hnaff and I just picked up a book called…THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES. It’s large beautiful book on the “best-kept secrets,” of some of the artwork. Looks interesting. Got in on sale. Two more books by Hnaff in the wings. I have not started Storm in a Teacup, The Physics of Everyday Life, but I’ll get to it. 🙂

  1. Ooh – the books of Joan Crawford and MGM look great!

    I just finished reading Terry Waite’s memoirs, about his time as a hostage in Beirut. Am now reading beloved Canadian historian Pierre Berton’s take on Classic Hollywood’s view of Canada. A delightful read – very funny in places.

  2. Hi Maedez,

    I was curious about why you were reading what you are. Love to see you include that in a future blog? The book by MATTEO TORCINOVICH, think I can guess at it. 🙂

    Love how voracious a reader you are.
