Meanwhile back at the ranch
I started reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, an international bestseller which I picked up in the giveaway basket at work.
So far, so good. It is well written and well translated (by Robert Graves’ daughter!), but it is overly romantic in its attitude about everything–from books to women.
“I leafed through the pages, inhaling the enchanted scent of promise that comes with all new books, and stopped to read the start of a sentence that caught my eye.”
I’ll let you know how far I get.
Not that I ate any chocolate bunnies or even eggs this year. No way. Maybe a jelly bean or two…
