What are you reading?

This is supposed to come out on Wesnesday but I am a day late and a hundred yen short.

This has been a very stressful week for me. Sometimes I concentrate so much on giving my kids an English and culturally Canadian experience that I am suddenly overwhelmed with the stuff I need to deal with for their childcare. I have so few precious hours with them, I hate to waste it on fixing others' mistakes and worrying. I also hate that comments about being a working mom means my children suffer really hurt me. Not my best week.

But like usual, I have a book to retreat into and help me relax and realize my problems aren't all that bad. At least I am not an 18th century gay man trying to avoid prosecution for buggery while in love with a man whose wife is a time traveller stuck in her own century. Silver lining that is a joy to read!

I'm still reading The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon. Almost done, but I am savouring the last few pages just for the pure enjoyment of them.

My kids and I read The Flying Canoe: A Christmas Story, so expect a review on that later this week.

What are you reading? What are you reading aloud?


  1. That did make me laugh into my afternoon coffee. 18th century gay man troubles. I need to count my blessings too. xxx

  2. I love Jamie Fraser! LOVE him! So I cannot believe that I haven't heard of the Scottish Prisoner before. I'm putting it on my shelfari and buying asap!
    Right now I'm reading Katherine. it's about Lady Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt.. it's very good :-)
