Reading progress update: I've read 10%.
The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays - Oscar Wilde,Richard Allen Cave

For bout-of-books I've decided to read all 9 of Oscar Wilde's plays. Yesterday I read The Importance of Being Ernest, which I loved. Today I read A Florentine Tragedy, which I didn't like so much but appreciated. Tonight I plan to read A Woman of No Importance.

I've finished the first of my reads for bout-of-books, well, it was an audio production. Anyway, I loved the play. I haven't read Wilde's other plays, but this was the only book in the catalogue I could find to represent it. Anyway, I loved it! Bout-of-books is off to a great start.

Bout Of Books Day #1
The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays - Oscar Wilde,Richard Allen Cave
Fleishman Is in Trouble - Taffy Brodesser-Akner
The Secret Barrister: Stories of the Law and How It's Broken - The Secret Barrister
The Rotters' Club - Jonathan Coe

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?

24 Tasks of the Festive Season - Day 9 / Task 1 - Thanksgiving
The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays - Oscar Wilde
Bad Blood: Secret and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - John Carreyrou
The Black Echo - Michael Connelly

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.

 

  1. The Importance of Being Earnest because it is an utterly delightful play and it brought absolute joy into my life while reading it.
  2. Bad Blood: Secret and Lies in a Silicon Valley Start-Up because it taught me never to trust a blond woman with blue eyes, who tries to stare me down and talks to me in a deep fake voice. This book has been utterly fascinating and it has shown me once again that most people are morons, who just want to believe what they want to believe at any giving moment.
  3. The Black Echo because this book has been my introduction into the world of Harry Bosch. I´m really looking forward to read more of this series.

The Importance of Being Earnest
The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays - Oscar Wilde

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.
