Friday Finds... sort of...


I don't have any "new" finds this week, but I did get my hands on a book I've been curious about for some time: Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh.

With the Emma Thompson adaptation recently released to DVD I've determined it's time for me to read this book. I have enjoyed so many of the films Thompson has starred in and been involved in making that I am very curious about Brideshead Revisited, but I think I need to read the novel first. So here we go... stay tuned!

On a side note, talking about Brideshead Revisited reminds me of another book, Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray. That book has also been on my TBR list for a very long time... If only I had someone to read it with, I might be a little more motivated to pick it up. I wonder what my chances are of getting my book club to read it?

Brideshead Revisited is a brilliant book -- one of my favorites.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my Miss Hickory post! It is funny what we remember from our childhoods.

I'd love to read Brideshead Revisited, but I'm STILL reading Les Miserables.

I've heard the book is brilliant, and the new Thompson film is ... not.

But that's just what I've heard.
