52 books in 52 weeks

So I finished
Polgara the Sorceress, went on to finish Belgarath the Sorcerer, and now I'm a few pages from finishing Pawn of Prophecy, all by David Eddings. Since these are re-reads I should be able to keep up nicely. I now plan to finish the Belgariad and then switch over to the Mitford novels by Jan Karon, with 3 re-reads and then a new one, #4, to take in. I plan to finish that series and the follow up to the Belgariad, the Mallorian, simultaneously, as the used bookstore has them available.

I was reading Cousin Bette by Balzac for the 18th Century Romance Novel group, but, no. Too much adultery, too much sacrifice, too many buttons being hit. I felt far too much for Adeline Hulot, and it's just not going well for her at all, poor woman. And you do all realize that Jenny Cadine was all of 13 when the Baron took her for his mistress? I know it may have been acceptable for the age, but that's just wayyyyy too triggering for me, sorry. I'm just dropping the group at this point. Anyway, sidebar is updated. Now, moving on....
