It started with an infatuation with anything Jane Austinish and was further fueled by series such as Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife… and now I am hopelessly addicted to watching and reading anything even remotely related to that time period. I already purchased the The World of Downton Abbey and just simply wanted more. This weekend I discovered the funny and sweet memoirs of Margaret Powell, the lowest of kitchen maids who tells her tale through her book, Below Stairs.
Even though I am resolutely against making New Year’s Resolutions, I did decide that I wanted to watch tv less in 2013 and read more. So far I have plowed through all the books I purchased last summer when we were in London. Among my fictional favorites so far? The Thirteen Tale and The House by the Sea.
What about you? Are you an avid reader? Do you find it as difficult as I do to find time for books? What is on your reading list these days?
