I've been home the last couple of days per doctor's orders. Acute sinusitis is the diagnosis so I'm here resting and trying to read while I have the time but having terrible headaches is not conducive to a good reading session. I started reading The Last of Her Kind by Sigrid Nunez yesterday but only made it through the first 50 pages before I passed out. I'm going to try reading for at least an hour straight today.
I'm reading Vanity Fair by Thackeray as well and I have to say I love the clever Miss Becky Sharp. Thackeray certainly knows how to portray conniving, clever, money hungry women...or in this case Miss Sharp. I like her character despite the fact that she is not the most ideal of women. She is spunky, self-assured, and very astute in knowing the true characters of those around her. Just some observations so far. I'm only 300 pages in.
