Are you having Downton Abbey withdrawals like I am, and can’t wait until January 5 when season 4 starts in the US? The good news is that there’s a Fay Weldon trilogy that’s almost as good as Downton Abbey. I’ve listened to the audiobook versions of the first–Habits of the House–and the second–Long Live the King–and am obsessed. I might have to cave and read the actual book version of the third, The New Countess, because I already have two other audiobooks waiting when I finish Long Live the King.
I will say that I’m “reading” a lot more since I started commuting to Bethesda–I thought the longer commute would drive me crazy but I honestly don’t mind it too much. When there’s no traffic, that is–I could do without having to wake up early enough to work out and still be able to leave the house by 7:15 to avoid it.
At any rate, keep your eyes peeled on the Downton Abbey countdown clock while you read and wait out the next 48 days and change!
