June 2012 Reading Summary (Nerd Alert)

Not so much reading in June for a variety of reasons. Plus, there was no lengthy vacation in Mexico on which to read my little heart out, so both of these changes are reflected in the reading numbers this month.

Off-Season (beaches/winter) – Ken McAlpine (NF)

Empire State: A Love Story (or not) – Jason Shiga (GN) (no blog post)

The Long Afternoon – Giles Waterfield (F)

The Hound of the Baskervilles – Sherlock Holmes (F) (no blog post)

Woman’s World – Graham Rawle (GN?)

The Summer Book – Susan Branch (NF)

The Age of Innocence – Edith Wharton (F)

Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury (F)

Howards End – E. M. Forster (F) N.B. This kills me not having an apostrophe. Just sayin’.

Superfreakonomics – Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner (NF)

Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves – P. G Wodehouse (F) (no blog post)

Perfect Meringues – Laurie Graham (F) (no blog post)

Total number of books read in May: 12 (not bad)

Fiction/Non-Fiction: 9 fiction /3 non-fiction (this NF total is a bit pitiful)

Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode):  Read 6 owned, and thus 6 are off the shelves. Good stuff!

I also read 3 electronic books (who are owned by no one and everyone!)

Three female authors. (Yikes.)  Nine male authors.  Most authors are white and from English-speaking countries. One is Chinese-American. Yikes. That’s not very diverse, is it?

Might want to stretch myself a bit more this month in terms of book variety. (Hmm. I recall saying this last month…)

Aah well. Reading comes, reading goes…
