So, as is the wont of many book bloggers, I like to review the previous month’s reading and see how things are going. April was a good month for reading as I polished off 8 books with only one of them being less than par for the course. So – not a bad way to spend your time.
Here are the titles that I completed (links given for earlier blog reviews):
Mustn’t Grumble: In Search of England and the English – Joe Bennett
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes – Arthur Conan Doyle (no formal review)
Aya – Marguerite About and Clement Oubrerie
The Diary of Good Neighbor – Doris Lessing
If the Old Could… – Doris Lessing
The City of Djinns: A Year in Delhi – William Dalrymple
The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
The Joy of Less – Francine Jay
The England of Ravilious – Freda Constable
Five were fiction, four were non-fiction; one graphic novel. I only owned two of the book titles though, and got the rest either electronically or from the library. Hmm. Would like to increase the book titles I own and complete this next month or so. Clear the shelves a bit in some microscopic way.
May is off to a great start, reading-wise, but there is no way that this pace can continue what with Real Life and stuff now I am off vacation. Oh well – it was fun whilst it lasted and I will still be reading – just not at such a furious pace. 🙂
