Today, Bookmoot tagged me for a meme. I can use the procrastination time. Also, it's an easy one, being only one question:
What books are you reading?
First up, a bunch of Jane books:
Jane Austen in Context ed. by Janet Todd
The Jane Austen Handbook: A Sensible Yet Elegant Guide to Her World by Maggie Sullivan (who runs AustenBlog and Tilneys and Trap-doors).
Jane Austen's Guide to Good Manners: Compliments, Charades & Horrible Blunders by Josephine Ross and Henrietta Webb
Juvenilia by Jane Austen, Cambridge ed.
And there's more, but I'll leave off there for now.
Also, as Jane research:
Introducing the Enlightenment by Lloyd Spencer et al.
Maude March on the Run by Audrey Couloumbis
American Bee: The National Spelling Bee and the Culture of Word Nerds by James Maguire
The Ode Less Travelled: Unlocking the Poet Within by Stephen Fry
Nine Horses: Poems by Billy Collins
I should note that I'm reading straight through Introducing the Enlightenment and taking notes, that I'm partway through American Bee but stalled, and that reference to the poetry books is an ongoing thing. Plus I've got a lot more poetry books that I riffle through now and again, but right now I'm reading a few from Nine Horses every day.
I'm not sure which is the sadder part -- how many books I'm reading, or how very many I have that I wish I had the time to read.
Tagging Debbi Michiko Florence, Literaticat, and Colleen Cook.
