This is also me a day late. And actually, this is what I was reading until this morning, when I finished it.
I bought it when I was in Kyoto last week. As the book was set in Kyoto and I had the Geisha makeover planned, it seemed like the perfect book. I found it really interesting. Unlike Memoirs of a Geisha, which I also love, Geisha of Gion is an autobiography and gives a lot more detailed insight into the life of a geisha.
While I've been lurking on a few blogs in the last couple of days, I've been strangely relieved that other people's book reading time has been reduced as they read more blogs. There is so much interesting reading on this big wide web now, that my bookshelf has been somewhat neglected. I know I only got through this last book so quickly because I was internet-less for a few days.
Thank you so much also to everyone for their kind words on my last post. I had a couple of days (helped by a perfectly timed long weekend) of hiding under a blanket, watching dvds, eating chocolate and getting lots of cuddles from my dh. I'm ready to happily face the world again and I hope to mend my relationship with my sister.
