I found myself thinking that a weekly sort of update might be nice this week...and then it occurred to me that it would be easy to do with Book Journey. So here's what's happening around these parts:
I just finished reading The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. I found it refreshing at first, and then got kind of bored. Took more willpower to read than a book of 137 pages should. Hm. I'm glad, however, to have experienced Muriel Spark.
The Shakespeare Stealer is next up in my Junior Lit...including this one, I have 4 books left in my Junior Lit challenges & I'm hoping to wrap those up before June hits.
Team of Rivals is glaring at me from the coffee table, the nightstand, and anywhere else I happen to tote it to. I need to dive into it, because I have a few other nonfiction books lined up, but it's big and I'm procrastinating. Blogging instead, see?
Mostly I'm avoiding books all of a sudden. What's the deal? Well, I made myself a goal to finish a certain 4 books before my book club date (last Monday) and though I accomplished my goal, my group's discussion got pushed 2 weeks at the last minute and it threw me off. It's taken me a little longer to regroup and set a new goal. I'm in the mood for classics and nonfiction, but having a hard time drumming up the concentration and patience they can demand. I'm working on it though!
Oh, and one more...I read another story last night from New Irish Short Stories. I haven't gotten through very many of them, and haven't had a huge amount of success with them either, but I haven't given up yet.
What are you reading?
