It may be a bit ambitious, but I'm hoping to finish all these books this week for Bout of Books, plus a slim guide to the workings of the economy by Yanis Varofakis that's not in the catalogue. Even if I don't finish them all a few done would be great. I was just ironing and listening to the BBC adaption of The Importance of Being Ernest (Oscar Wilde). I'm nearly finished it and it's proving fantastic, with performances from Judi Dench and Colin Firth. I'll have that finished by tonight.
The challenge today, introduce yourself in six words:
Words abound today, why not always?
Task 1: List the 3 books you’ve read this year you’re most “thankful” for (your favs) or the one book you’ve ever read that changed your life for the better.
I´m going with the most "thankful" part of this task. These books might not be my five star reads of the year, but they are the books that I´m most happy about having read this year.
It´s a short play, so I`m not going to give a synopsis of the book. Besides, the story is completely bonkers and I wouldn´t even know where to begin in explaining the plot.
However, what I´m going to tell you is that this play is utterly delightful. The dialogue is amazing, Lady Bracknell is a hoot (as are the other characters) and I loved every single page of it.
I´ve read The Importance of Being Earnest for the Festivus square (read any comedy, parody or satire) and it´s been a perfect read for this square.
