Monthly Reading Summary for September 2012

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

One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch – Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1963)

A Woman of Any Means – Nina Bawden (1967) – minor blog mention. (Wouldn’t bother to check it if I were you. The book was not a good read. Honestly. I’m trying to help you here.)

Join Me – Danny Wallace (2003)

Once Were Warriors – Alan Duff (1990)

The Sign of Four – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1890)

The Book of Joe – Jonathan Tropper (2004)

The Fast and the Furriest – Andy Behrens (1990) – no blog post

The Misses Mallet – E. H. Young (1922) – no blog post

The Things They Carried – Tim O’Brien (1990) – blog post to come

On Writing Well – William Zinsser (1979)

Total number of books read in July: 9 (same as last month and on average for the year I think)

Fiction/Non-Fiction:  7 fiction /  2 non-fiction

Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): four library books and five owned books. (Pats self on back there for getting books out of house. Handily forgets the glut of books that slipped in.)

I also read two electronic books (who is owned by no one and everyone!) Thank you, Project Gutenberg and the volunteers who spend countless hours typing these books for us to read.

  1. I love the internet archives, which incorporate Project Gutenberg books as well. Glad I’m not the only one who regularly mines the public domain. It started because of lack of money, but continued because I love finding new gems. 🙂 Thanks.

    • I love finding the not-so-famous gems that would be hard to get hold of otherwise… And there are so many to choose from!… Bliss…. Glad to hear that someone takes use of this great site.
