Monthly Summary for July 2012

With life keeping me a bit too occupado for my liking, my reading has gone down somewhat (although I am at a loss to explain what else I have doing with my time)… :-}

So here are the stats for July 2012. Nothing too impressive, I’m afraid, but I enjoyed them all the same. (And isn’t that the true name of the game anyway?) 🙂

I read the following titles (with links to blog posts about said book where there is one):

Great American Short Stories – Corinne Demas (ed.)

The Interrogative Mood: A Novel? – Padget Powell

Lady Audley’s Secret – M. E Braddon

The Dead Beat – Marilyn Johnson

A Room with a View – E. M Forster

Peter Pan – J. M. Barrie

A Sight for Sore Eyes – Ruth Rendell (no blog post)

Total number of books read in July:  7

Fiction/Non-Fiction:  six fiction / one non-fiction

Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode):  four library books and two owned books. (Not such a stellar record, but it is what it is.)

I also read three electronic books (who are owned by no one and everyone!) Thank you, Project Gutenberg.

  1. My book reading has gone downhill this whole year. I think I’ve read two books? And both were books I’d already read years ago.

    How was A Room with a View? That is one book I do want to read eventually.

    • Nicole – reading comes and goes in life… No pressure. it’s supposed to be a fun thing, after all. 🙂

      About Room w a View: Loved it, but not quite as much as Howards End…. Room was more philosophical in many ways whereas Howards was more of a straightforward story. (Still plenty to think about, but fewer digressions.)

      thanks for popping by the blog.
