Every month the bloggers over at 5 Minutes for Books do a post where they summarise the books they’ve been reading for the past month. Anyone can join in and below is my summary for the month.
I had a decent book reading month last month, I finished reading four books, as well as the weekly New Scientist magazines I got as well. Until just reviewing it now I thought I’d had a pretty slow reading month, but four books and a few magazines isn’t too bad when I think about it.
Since my last post in June, here are the few books I finished reading… There are still a couple I need to do reviews on, but the ones that have links go to the reviews.
- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
- Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
- The House of Dust and Dreams by Brenda Reid
The number of books I seem to read at a time seems to fluctuate these days. Sometimes it annoys me having a few on the go, and sometimes I get more pleasure out of reading a few at a time:
- Do You Come Here Often? by Alexandra Potter – This book lives on my nightstand pretty much and is the book I spend a few minutes reading in the evening or while I’m eating.
- Dracula by Bram Stoker – This is an eBook and so is easier to carry around with me cos it lives on my phone (or laptop if I need a break from work), and I can read a bit here and there before an appointment or something.
- Winter’s Heart by Robert Jordan – This is an audio book and I tend to listen to it when I preparing my lunch or cooking dinner or even out for a walk.
I haven’t really thought too much about what books are up next, but maybe one or two of the following:
- Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
- Big Fat Manifesto by Susan Vaught
- Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan
What books have you been reading the last month or so? Are there any books you’re reading now or are looking forward to reading in the near future?
