Well, just because I did not like it, that doesn't mean that others might not enjoy it very much.

I do think this may be a symptom of the 'reading addiction'. Those who the joke is they will "read the fine print on the back of cereal box" (for lack of something better to read).

I also have books I am reading all over the place.

Melly, you sound just like a good friend of mine! Do you have cats all over the house as well as books?

:D Now you sound like me Therese ... I looked over at my reading pile just last night and caught one of my four cats casually trying to bat a book from the top onto the floor.

In other news i am *still* waiting for my copy of Abundance, however I have been assured it's in the mail.

Yes, I have cats all over the house too....I guess we could say I have the honor of feeding them, housing them and paying their bills. Any cat lover will understand that. And in return they purr and allow me a corner of the bed, a cushion on the couch.

Oh, Melly, you are just like a certain friend of mine! Well, dear, curl up with a cat and start plowing through "Abundance" so we can have a lively discussion!

An interview with the author of "Abundance" to spark some discussion.

Well my copy finally arrived in the mail and I managed to read through the first few pages before bed last night.

My first impression is that the tone is not quite right. Antoinette doesn't speak with the voice I had anticipated, but perhaps I will become used to this version of her voice the more that I read.

I am also reading Madame Campan's memoirs which arrived in the post, newly published by 1500 books ( http://www.1500books.com/?978-1-933698-00-7 ). This has been lovely, previously I'd only read the memoirs from printed pages collected from Project Gutenberg ( http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/3891 ) and holding a book makes such a difference! But anyway so far it's been interesting to read the two treatments of Antoinette's crossing of the frontier and I suspect I will continue to compare and contrast as I go.
