I’ve had Keeping the Castle on my library shelf–oh, who am I kidding, ONE of my library SHELVES–for quite a while, but it didn’t occur to me until recently that it might be worth trying on the treadmill. It’s a hardcover, which is problematic, but it’s a smaller, lighter one, and it looked like it was going to be an amusing read, so why not at least try it?
Why not, indeed! I have since pushed my three closest friends into checking it out of the library as well–two of them have already finished it–and the ONLY reason my sister doesn’t have it in her possession at this very moment is that she moved last week and so I have to wait for her to give me a library card number before I can go online and put it on hold for her. (Yes, I really do that. On a fairly regular basis.) In the meantime, you should all go out and get it for yourselves, unless the idea of a mashup between Pride & Prejudice, Emma, and Cinderella holds no appeal for you at all. And really, if that’s the case, why on earth are you reading my blog? (No offense, you understand.)
Anyway. It’s a fabulously fun read. (And since we have Amazon Prime–sorry, bookseller friends, I shop at B&N too, though–it’s currently on its way to Idaho as an in-between-houses-warming gift. Because moving is miserable.) On to the sequel!
