Decisions, Decisions …

Persephone Reading Week, hosted by Verity and Claire begins on Friday.

A week ago I knew excactly what I was going to read: A London Child of the 1870s by Molly Hughes. It looks lovely, I’ve been meaning to read it for ages, and I know that the library has the out-of-print sequels.

But then I read a short story by Susan Glaspell, and it made me want to pick up one of her novels. And Simon said that he thought Fidelity was rather good …

And then Danielle said that Lyn had recommended Winifred Peck. And I remembered that I had a copy of House-bound tucked away …

When I looked for that book noticed another, and I remembered how much I love Monica Dickens’ writing, and how much I want to read another of her novels. I still haven’t read Mariana, despite owning a numbered orange Penguin copy as well as the lovely Persephone edition …

And then, with wonderful timing, the copy of Dimanche and Other Stories by Irène Némirovsky that I had forgotten ordering appeared with my name on the label on the reservations shelf in the library ..

So now I really don’t know.

What do you think I should read?

And what will you be reading this weekend?
