Reading progress update: I've read 136 out of 240 pages.

Life Among the Savages - Shirley Jackson

I've finished the bit I love best, that starts "We are all of us, in our family, very fond of puzzles."


It's three card monte on the page, which is a really challenging bit of sleight-of-hand, what with the ability of the reader to slow down the action and go back over it just as carefully just as many times as one wants. I had misremembered that it was a pillow lost, but otherwise it was as good as I remembered.


I have chosen wisely with my Christmas book gift card.
