On my reading list this week courtesy of Paperbackswap , The Sisters: The Saga of the Mitford Family.  As if I have time to read and reading also requires quiet, which I can only find in the bathroom (barely) and sorry to say I am not one of those people who can read while on the pot, eeew.  But I've been waiting for this book forever and my obsession with all things Mitford is ongoing despite all the politics associated with them or maybe it actually is because of it. Only they could make Nazi sympethizing look so glamorous...gasp, how scandalous!  

And of course a quiz, Which Mitford Sister Are You?  While taking it the entire time I kept thinking, "Please not Unity!" "Please not Unity!", instead I got Diana,  beautiful and smart, but still a bit of a Nazi, but at least she didn't shoot herself in the head over it.


  1. now that quiz was fun. i read that Mitford book about 5 years ago and i can say that i always want to read another book that i liked that much (same with Savage Beauty, about Edna St. Vincent Millay). i hate when the only books i feel like reading are ones i have already read.

    but back to the quiz, i am Diana Mitford Mosley, and thankfully, not Unity Mitford, what a nut!

  2. Oh great! Something to add to my To Read list, thank you. :)

    Lauren, I loved Savage Beauty, too, and often have that feeling with books and movies, like I only want to read/see the ones I've already read/seen.

  3. also going to find that book, sounds so great! love a good historical read!
