I’ve started Death Comes to Pemberley. It is lovely. Any of you looking to use up bookshop gift cards (the Constant Reader has some I know) I’d recommend getting this book. I find it true to the spirit of Austen, down to the author’s apology to the Shade of Jane Austen. Good stuff. All this means I cannot make any decisions about the Best Book I Read in 2011 just yet.
In honour of the sixth day of Christmas, here is another song:
Happy New Year! (That is to say, happy arbitrary calendar date which we designate as the beginning of a new year.)
