Wednesdays are for books (VI)

Life has returned to what passes for normal around here, so I haven't been reading quite as much as I would like - but who has time to read as much as they would like? I'd like an hour in bed every night, just reading in the warmth.

I'm reading  Reading Claudius, by Caroline Heller.
It's a Second world was memoir, written by the protagonists granddaughter. I am somehow related to her - there are Hellers on my mothers side of the family. I am only about half way through, but it is very well written, and a good read - I don't want to say "enjoyable" because obviously it's telling a traumatic story, but so far it's very good. It's also telling a different aspect of the Jewish Second World War experience - that of refugees, rather than the more common concentration camp narrative.

What are you reading this week? Are you enjoying it?
