I stayed up late last night to finish People of the Book, by Geraldine Brooks. I can’t believe it took me so long to get around to reading it! What was I thinking? I loved it. I loved it more than March, despite that book’s Pulitzer Prize. It’s been so long since I read Year of Wonders that I can’t compare the two. And I can’t find my copy of Year of Wonders, so I can’t re-read it immediately to find out which I loved more. At the moment, though, I’m leaning towards People of the Book. 🙂
I started The Eyre Affair this morning during breakfast. I’m only a few pages in, but I think I’m going to really like this one, too.
