A exciting week is ahead for me as today was my first day in my new job (lovely people and fab office – good start!). I’ve still got a pretty serious commute so plenty of time for reading (currently I’m totally absorbed in The Song of Achilles, by Madeline Miller) and possibly blogging as I have a nice light laptop courtesy of work.
So it’s just a quick post today to share some lovely arrivals in the post:
Firstly, I was delighted to receive a lovely new edition of The Master and Margarita, by Mikhail Bulgakov and The Intelligent Woman’s Guide: To Socialism, Capitalism, Sovietism and Fascism, by George Bernard Shaw (both Alma Classics) – I’m hoping that The… Guide is one that I can just dip into rather than read cover to cover as I do normally prefer novels, however I do also love George Bernard Shaw. Also a copy of My Brilliant Friend, by Elena Ferrante which looks dauntingly chunky but interesting.
I’m very excited about my tickets to Sleeping Beauty. I’ve seen a couple of other Matthew Bourne’s adaptations courtesy of Mr Savidge Reads and really enjoyed them. Plus it’s just the thing for the Christmas season.
Finally, the DVD of Jane Eyre, arrived from Love Film so that’ll be one to curl up with at the end of my busy week 🙂
Has anyone read or seen any of my new arrivals?
