Just a Touch of Whimsy
This year's reading theme is all about reading on a whim, and not to a set program of categories or amounts. So far it has been kind of boring, not knowing what to read next, but I have been getting used to the idea, and have even begun to enjoy it. I have not been reading as much as I have been previously, and it feels strange not to (so this month I have been focusing more on books). Fellow members from the 2014 Reading Challenge have been very encouraging of my scheme and have also mentioned the crime fiction of Dorothy L. Sayers and her character Lord Peter Wimsey. So, on a whim, I have decided that it might be fun to read some.
Naturally I started at the beginning with Whose Body. I found the story to be quite shocking, actually. Written in the twenties, it has that Wodehouse kind of flair (sans humour), being situated in London, and this time period 1920's) has always been one of my favorites. I liked Wimsey, and his universe. I look forward to reading more about this character.
