IT’S MONDAY! WHAT ARE YOU READING?

De Profundis is an epistle written by Oscar Wilde during his imprisonment in Reading Gaol, to Lord Alfred Douglas. I picked this work as it was recommended by few friends to me, sometime back. Also, it is one the few works written by Oscar Wilde remaining which I have not read.

Well, what are you reading?

    1. I’ve read that one! I enjoyed while reading it. Oscar Wilde is wonderful, you should read his short stories and plays,and he’ll make you wonder little things in his own glorious fashion. De Profundis, precisely is not his best work.

  1. Having finished Les Miserables (very proud of myself!) and the most recent Game of Thrones book, I’ve now moved on to re-reading Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Currently about to start Life, the Universe and Everything. xx

    1. WOW! some big books there! Which Game of Thrones book? Les Miserables is in my TBR list for a long time 🙂 Hitchhikers Guide to Galaxy is the good one!

      1. Yeah – I got my tonsils out recently and had a couple of weeks with a lot of spare time on my hands – so read Les Mis and watched all 4 series of Downton Abbey. I start a new job on April 1st, so I’m going to get the best of my final week of unemployment by doing a lot of reading!

        A Dance with Dragons part 2: After the Feast.

        I love Hitchhikers Guide – I read a blog post ‘5 fascinating facts about Douglas Adams’ and realised how long it was since I’d read it. After that I’ve got 2 children’s books by Joanne Harris (Runemarks and Runelight) which I’m going to read while I’m waiting for The Gospel of Loki to come out in paperback or appear in my library.

        Ooh – also, I got Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri in the charity shop today. I wasn’t aware of this author until I read your blog post the other week, so I’m looking forward to reading that. xx

      2. I hope you are well now and congratulations on your new job. Game of Thrones is an exciting fantasy to read. And yes if you’ll read Jhumpa Lahiri, you’ll experience a lot new things, new culture, etc.
        I hope you enjoy your week before the job, and Happy Reading! 🙂

      1. I love the dystopian feel of Legend! However, I haven’t gotten to far past the inciting incident because I’ve been reading Call of the Herald. It’s going pretty good. Keeps my attention.
