o/t: leisure reading during May

I thought I’d got through a fair stack of books this past month, so was surprised to discover the total was pretty modest. As always, the links are to my fairly hurried Goodreads jottings.

  1. You read a lot more than me John. A couple there I wouldn’t mind trying. I may have the Brown somewhere in the stash already.

  2. Well, I read one book this month. Just one. And it wasn’t even 500 pages. I must be slacking off in my old age.

    As of your list, it looks like a great bunch of titles. How did you like The Old Man in the Corner?

    • Yes, but was it an improving book?

      I liked The Old Man in the Corner quite a lot — enough that I downloaded more of Orczy’s stuff from Gutenberg. The stories have a nice, genial lightness: they’re not going to keep anyone awake at nights thinking through the implications, or whatever, but they offer an amiable companionship . . . which is just what’s sometimes wanted.
