It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Well, not much new to report this week in my reading. Still working on Stephen King’s 11/22/63 for the 112263Along, and I started Sudden Sea by R. A. Scotti, the December book for the Stranger than Fiction book group at the Kansas City Public Library. The Scotti book is about the 1938 hurricane that devastated the New England coast. It’s a fast-paced read, and reminds me of Erik Larsen’s Isaac’s Storm, which I read earlier this year.
I didn’t have much time to read lately because I had a gig over the weekend and yesterday was my birthday! It was Handel’s Messiah, classical holiday fare, and I had never played it before. I had a lot of fun though, even if it is kind of an exhausting piece (3 hours! And we didn’t even play the whole thing!). But yeah I had a great birthday—my orchestras’ upcoming concerts got mentioned in the paper, I had a great yoga session, 200+ followers notification from WordPress, great gig, PACKER WIN, cards/online messages/phone calls from family and friends, and a wonderful meal and lovely flowers from my husband.
