So here's the deal. I've been on a knitting rampage for the last few months, and it is definitely eating into my reading time. But. I can knit while I'm visiting with friends, (can't really read and visit at the same time,) and I've made some really great things. There: I've come clean. In other news, I'm moving again this month, and so all my newly unpacked books are being repacked. Which books do I leave out in order that I might read them in the next month? Such difficult decisions!
6 Books Read in February: (14 year-to-date)
1 for Book Club:
- The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, David Wroblewski (3.5) [boooring]
3 Wishlist/New Books:
- The Death of Bees, Lisa O'Donnell (4) [Indiespensable selection, set in Scotland!]
- The Illusion of Separateness, Simon VanBooy (5) [ARC--perfect, brilliant, lovelovelove]
- The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller (4) [proof that genre fiction can be well written]
2 from my shelf:
- The Toothpaste Millionaire, Jean Merrill (4) [fun read-aloud, and smart too]
- River of Earth, James Still (4) [classic Appalachian lit]
2 Current Reads:
- Some Tame Gazelle, Barbara Pym. My first time reading Pym! It's fun and funny, if a bit simplistic. But there's a time and a place for everything & this is fun right now.
- Crime and Punishment, Fyodor Dostoevsky. Reading it along with a great group (& Wallace) @ Unputdownables. I must admit I'm not enjoying it much, but if I don't finish it now, I never will. So: little by little, keep on reading.
On My Nightstand:
I seem to have the same 2 books on my nightstand. Maybe I'll stick them back on my shelf and see if that makes me more in the mood for them?
