{what are you reading?}

Would love to add some new reading to my google reader -- does anyone have any suggestions of lovely new blogs you've discovered recently?

Can hardly wait for sexy summer clothes and breezy summer nights

And while we're on the topic of reading, a fond, fond farewell to domino magazine . . .

{editorial: Mad About The Girl!; magazine: Vogue Australia December 2005; model: Gemma Ward; photographer: Patrick Demarchelier}

In print, re-reading mostly. Chekhov, John Updike, Shirley Hazzard's short, incisive memoir "Graham Greene on Capri"--excellent. My vocabulary triples upon reading Shirley H.

On the web, have been enjoying Wee Birdy & Bleeding Espresso. (And automatism & A Cup of Jo, Paris Breakfasts, as always.) Both are up for a Bloggie this year.


And TIG, but of course:)

Ciao-meow to all!

No no no. If we don't say it out loud, it won't be true. Domino is NOT gone. Not gone. Sob!

There are so many amazing bloggers out there that I simply can't keep up! But lately I'm loving:


And in keeping with my new year's goal of reading 'actual books' (which I will have to do even more of now that all my fave mags are dying) I'm totally into books written by indian authors. i saw slumdog millionaire over the holidays and the incredible vibrancy of the culture has me wanting more! currently working on 'a fine balance' and next up is 'the namesake'.
