I’ve never been good at keeping track of the books I’ve read, so I thought I might compile a list finished this year. But instead of Jan 1-Jan 1, I think I’ll go Christmas to Christmas. So!
Finished since Christmas:
-Waking Rose by Regina Doman
-The Midnight Dancers by Regina Doman
-The Ball and the Cross by GK Chesterton
-Monkeys by Susan Minot
The reason this list is not longer is because I am in the middle of a lot of books. Some of which I am reading more steadily than others. (I’m almost finished with Flannery O’Connor’s letters. They are a joy to me.) If you look a the sidebar, you will notice that a lot of them are nonfiction. The thing is, I can only take so much nonfiction at once, so much brainfood. Then I need to have my fiction.
Speaking of fiction. I am in the middle of The Sea Wolf by Jack London and have been for some time. I enjoy it, but since the semester started I keep forgetting about it, and it gets buried beneath other books beside my bed. I got a book called Spirits in the Wires by Charles de Lint from the library yesterday, and ordered one called Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout because it was on sale for 5.50 on Amazon.
