Happy Wednesday!! I decided not to continue reading Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk. I don't like the writing style, at all!! It's written in a some kind of broken english style. I tried to read it for two days and everytime I read it I kept thinking what the flipping heck am I reading?!? I just couldn't get through it. I can barely understand it. So, I decided to put it down and I think this is the first time I didn't finish a book in probably two or three years.

Today I started The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy. I've read Far from the Madding Crowd before and really enjoyed it, so I hope I'll enjoy this one too. Has anyone read Pygmy or The Mayor of Casterbridge? What's your thought?

I forgot how much I loved this story. Thanks, Mrs. Hewig, for the recommendation all those years ago. ❀️ #themayorofcasterbridge #thomashardy

β€’"Like all people who have known rough times, lightheartedness seemed to her too irrational and inconsequent to be indulged in except reckless dram now and then; for she had been too early habituated to anxious reasoning to drop the habit suddenly. She felt none of those ups and downs of spirit which cause; never - to paraphrase a recent poet - never a gloom in Elizabeth-Jane's soul but she well knew how it came there; and her present cheerfulness was fairly proportionate to her solid guarantee for the same."
~ Thomas Hardy, The Mayor Of Casterbridge.

How I like my dinner: rustic, cozy, with warm soup and a Thomas Hardy book.

Today I'm leaving to start my holidays!πŸŽ‰ We're spending a few days on Lake Garda and then another few days in the mountains. I seriously need to take my mind off things. I leave you with these beautiful Hardy editions by Penguin English Library (the old one) that I found the other day for 5€! I couldn't just leave them there! Swipe to see the beautiful package cover 😊

Books that I received as hereditary from my grandfather.

In India, we call it 'viraasat'. Everyone says, I have got this bibliophilism from him only.

The books here are:
πŸƒMother by M. Gorky
πŸƒMayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy
πŸƒColeridge and The Ancient Mariner by S.T. Coleridge
