I finally finished Cather's The Song of the Lark last night. I forgot how much I love her writing. I spent much longer with this book because I savored the language, re-reading passages. Makes me want to go re-read some of her other books.
I'm now reading Anchee Min's Empress Orchid, about China's last empress. I'm only about 15 pages in but I'm enjoying it so far. Tomorrow is my day off, so I'm going to stay in bed and read.
