Some book-related things

It's Lent, so I'm finally getting round to reading Marilynne Robinson's Absence of Mind. I have been fearing this, I fear having to use my brain.

In other book news, the Morning Post's annual Tournament of Books has started. So far Freedom and Room are through to the next round, so no big surprises there. As well as the judge's verdict there's a commentary on the verdict by the people who run the thing, I think.

Plus it seems that Faber's The Crimson Petal and the White has been dramatised by the BBC. Maybe I should reread it. I wonder if they've made up a proper ending?
