Another title I'm enjoying is Winston Graham's Ross Poldark: A Novel of Cornwall (1783-1787).
Poldark is an English soldier returning home from fighting in the Colonies in the American Revolution. I am hooked. We have the Masterpiece Theater mini series from many years ago, and I plan to watch it when I am finished with this first book.
DH and I have noticed that not only are we losing some of our favorite bookstores, but the ones that are still here are downsizing in the amount of books they're selling. Many of the larger chains sell lots of "stuff" in addition to a dwindling number of books. In my adult years, I have seen the demise of Borders, Walden Books, B Dalton--the so-called "Brick and Mortar" stores have been replaced with the Kindles, Nooks and Amazon! I can't relate to the idea of reading a book on a device. Our children have Kindles but use them primarily for music and news (since we don't do the fancy phones). We all still love the thrill of bringing home a new book or even more so the feeling of an old book found in a used book store. I love the edition of Poldark I found for this post.
What are you reading this week? Old or new? Fiction or non?
Hope you're enjoying this gift from the Lord.
