In Which Trai Gives An Update
Oh how I love the snow. :) Classes were canceled today, so I had some time to catch up on reading. I finished Shakespeare's King Lear, which I've been meaning to read for a while, and it was wonderful! I don't think I'll review it here; what can I say about Shakespeare that hasn't been said? Haha.
I'm also reading Ann Howard Creel's The Magic of Ordinary Days as part of the ongoing Forties Binge. It's really wonderful and I'm about halfway through; I've also got the movie with Keri Russell and Skeet Ulrich on hand. Hopefully I'll be able to do something about those over the weekend.
I've also got an exciting opportunity-- Quirk Classics offered a chance for bloggers to review in advance the newest Quirk Classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith. It's a prequel to PPZ and I'm excited to be among the first to get to read it! The review will be up on March 3rd, along with the chance to win a cool contest Quirk is running for the readers of all the blogs participating in the advance reviews. (I received the advance copy in an envelope clearly marked with "Tutor Girl Reads" and everything. Quite awesome. I took a picture, haha.)
They were also really nice and sent all us bloggers a sneak peek at the fourth Quirk Classic, Android Karenina by Leo Tolstoy and Ben H. Winters. That's the picture accompanying this entry.
To all of you dealing with the snow like I am, stay warm and stay plowed! :) I hope to be posting as much as I can in the next couple days.
