I've made a resolution: to re-read Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke. The BBC are filming an serial adaptation of it starring Bertie Carvel and Eddie Marsan also involving, delightfully, John Heffernan! It's a very long and quite difficult book, but I am determined to make more sense of it this time around. :-)

I read it when it was published too. Like you, I don't remember much about it. But I don't think I will be re-reading it! To be honest, not even sure if I still have it! I will, however, DEFINITELY be watching the BBC TV adaptation.

Have FINALLY started reading again (this Christmas break). I'm really enjoying "A Possible Life" by Sebastian Faulks. But then again, I am a longtime Faulks fan.
