What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Meet Mr Mulliner - P.G. Wodehouse I'd read the the other two Mr. Mulliner collections before Meet Mr. Mulliner, the aptly named first one in the series, though the order of the Mr. Mulliner books is less important since they are essentially a series of short stories. Mr. Mulliner tells these all as frame stories in his local pub, always featuring a distant relative who has had some sort of adventure. This is typical PG Wodehouse, full of offbeat and humorous stories of relatives getting themselves into and out of trouble. In general I don't like the Mr. Mulliner series as much as Blandings or Jeeves, but these were still fine examples of PG Wodehouse's style and humor.
