20.Jul.2008 Sunday Salon Week #8
I’ve been reading Wuthering Heights since last Saturday. Slowly. I’m on page 122 now (of 323 pages), chapter XII. I agree that characterization in this book is very strong, but the old English surely slows me down a lot, hence deter me a bit from fully enjoying this piece of literature. I’m reading along with some BC members and that helps.
On the other hand, my grandma (of 84 years old) and my auntie are visiting for the weekend, so I spent practically my entire weekend with them, cooking and going around. My auntie loves Daisho (the $2 Japanese shop) and Ikea. She could spend hours at each place and bought quite a lot of stuff too.
Needless to say, not much reading was done this weekend.
