BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?


After seeing Sherlock Holmes, with the brilliant leads of Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law, I am in a mystery/Victorian frame of mind. Excellent movie, very funny, and well done. I bought myself The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins to read. It's huge! Over 600 pages. I think I'll pick at it now and then until I get well established in the story. It was written as a serial originally so I am just staying true to the original.

In reading, I am in Cyprus, circa 1956, as the British hang on to their rule, and a couple tries to hang on to their marriage. War ruins everything. (Small Wars, Sadie Jones)

Where is reading taking you today? Leave a comment, write a post, spread the word.

I really enjoyed The Woman in White and hope you will too (it took me a while to get through as well).

Hubby and I saw Sherlock Holmes Christmas Day. We enjoyed it.

I'm currently between books. Trying to decide if I want to finish off a short story book before the year end or read something very light and fluffy (which I'm kind of in the mood for after my last two heavy reads).

Enjoy Small Wars!

Oooo, I really can't wait to see Sherlock Holmes! I hope it comes to our teeny rural theater very soon.

Here's my post today:

We're hoping to fit Robert Downey... I mean Sherlock Holmes... into our line up sometime this week!

I'm eager to see Sherlock Holmes soon.

This week, I'm traveling around with Anne Morrow Lindbergh and her husband Charles during the first happy and hectic months of their marriage -- 1929, 1930. Anne is expecting her first child soon.
