For the Record: August 2012

It's been three weeks since I've finished reading a book.  Unfortunately that's not because I'm busy throwing back some impressive chunksters, but because I'm busy running around doing a billion other things. (pout)  Still and all, I did read 6 books (which, all things considered, isn't half bad.)

6 Books Read in August: (81 year-to-date)
1 for Book Club:
  - A Thousand Acres, Jane Smiley (3.5)

5 for Fun/Challenges:
  - One of Ours, Willa Cather (4)
  - Lady Windermere's Fan, Oscar Wilde (4)
  - Hell and Ohio, Chris Holbrook (4.5) [highly recommended short stories]
  - Quiet, Susan Cain (4) [read-along, reviewed here]
  - The End of the Affair, Graham Greene (4)

          

Challenges:
This month I read 4 books of 51 (33 year-to-date) for my various year-long challenges.
   - Willa Cather: One of Ours (done!)
   - Pulitzer: A Thousand Acres (1 more to go)
   - TBR Shelf: Hell and Ohio (6 more to go)
   - Back to Classics: Lady Windermere's Fan (2 more to go)


2 Current Reads:
  - Moloka'i, Alan Brennert.  I'm behind in my book club selections, this one is first up.
  - Into the Blue, Robert Goddard.  This book club meets soon too, so this book is next.

 

On My Nightstand:
 If you saw my recent post, you wouldn't ask.  ;)  Seriously though, I'm looking at Redemption Falls and Les Miserables, both for read-alongs that are starting soon.

  1. Six books is excellent if your haven't finished anything in 3 weeks. Six books would be an awesome month for me. :) Anyway, it is good to be back in the blogging world again. I hope for me this means things are settling down.

    1. That's what I'm hoping too! I'm pretty shocked at how busy I was...I mean, I'm always busy, but so busy that I don't even have a chance to think about picking up a book? That's just crazy. :) Hope life is done being absolutely crazy for a little while...at least until I move house in a few weeks. ;)
