Have I mentioned that I’m reading “Jane Eyre”? Somehow, in high school and college, I was never required to read it, so I’m remedying that now. I’m surprised by how good, and accessible, it is. I was prepared for a real slog. I’m about halfway through, and I love the windswept, candle-lit atmosphere that pervades the book.
My biggest challenge is just making the time to sit down and read. A little more than a week went by when I was so busy I didn’t read a word. But now I’m back in the saddle and making progress.
A couple of years ago I read “Wuthering Heights,” so soon I can say I’ve dispatched with the major works of the Brontes. For what that’s worth.
