Hi guys,

I’m struggling to get on with the reading in Hemingway’s list. Everyone is telling me how wonderful these authors are, yet I had to give myself a stern talking to to finish Madame Bovary!

I don’t know about you but I’m bored out of my skull.

But you have to finish what you start right? Some know-it-all perfect person said that, but it is very difficult for us mere mortals. So, I’m straightening my back, or my gown (I’m not dressed yet and it’s already mid-day), and putting on my stiff upper lip (oh dear I just hope it doesn’t fall off somewhere).

If you’re coughing it’s because I’m dusting off these old tomes. And I’m ready to read again.
