What I am reading Wednesday… on a Thursday
Thursday 29th October 2020 6:14 pm
I was going to post this last night, but my RSS feeds had gone off the idea of updating. As a result I spent the evening installing a new version and then working through every feed's ~25 new feeds to work out which ones I'd actually read. And deleting some feeds I'd forgotten I had because they hadn't been updated in years.
What I Just Finished Reading
Doctor Who: The Day She Saved the Doctor. I read the first three stories in this so long ago that I can't remember anything about it. I'd got to the last one, struggled with the first page and read something else. My Kobo told me I only had about 15 minutes left to read on it, so I thought I might as well read it and then it's read.
And I don't know why I struggled with the first page before because I read the whole story in one go. It was an interesting one about Bill buying a jacket and then crazy things happen.
What I'm Currently Reading
Shopgirls by Pamela Cox and Annabel Hobley. I'm currently still pretty much at the start of women working in shops. They're still doing 10 hours a day, all standing up, for very little pay, and society is scandalized by the idea of people enjoying shopping. I already knew about their terrible working conditions at the start, in the Victorian era, but I don't know about it changing, other than it obviously does. So I'm looking forward to discovering more about that as I go through the book.
What I'm Reading Next
The Bettany Twins and the Chalet School by Helen Barber, which arrived through my letterbox recently. Although every time I see the title I think it's about Madge and Dick and am disappointed to remember it's actually about Peggy & Rix and Meave & Maurice. Which didn't stop me buying it and won't stop me enjoying it either, I expect.
