OK, so sad day...I cannot find nor did I bring the Nook charger, which means no more The Apothecary's Daughter until I can remedy the situation.
On the way here (that means in the airport and on the plane) I started reading another book (one I'm reading for Free Press) and then started, this morning, my official read for this week, Jane Eyre. I have not read more than one book at once in such a long time that I feel like a college student or high schooler balancing my reading between kid, trip, socializing and work...sigh, the olden days.
Over at Goodreads there's a Jane Eyre challenge, you know read the book/watch the movie type thing. If it wasn't for Goodreads I wouldn't even know there was going to be a new movie. This is how out of it I've been lately.
I remember reading Jane Eyre, the first time, at about the same time I first read Rebecca. I remember thinking that they had similar moods and tones and...*please don't hurt me* I remember liking Rebecca more. Reading Jane Eyre again, I know the exact reason why I like Rebecca more...I dislike the Dickensian via Great Expectations and Oliver Twist, Orphan Annie, horrible extended family Pride and Prejudice-esque, A Little Princess (hope I've given you enough literary adjectives to help you understand what I'm talking about) beginning. It doesn't fit with the rest of the book. I can't wait until I get out of this part and into the rest of it...and at approximately 6 chapters a day, I should be there sometime tomorrow.
Good news is once I'm finished I get to watch the movie. I think it will be a fun date night for when I get back, just me, Christopher Lee, Jane and Rochester. I will not watch the new movie until I finish the book. It's a rule.
This book also covers two of my reading challenges...WOOT.
