May 2014 Reading Wrap-Up

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

And there were multiple DNF’s as well, for some reason:

  • Confessions of an Advertising Man – David Ogilvy (not surprisingly but I was hoping it wasn’t – this was really offensively dated and I couldn’t finish it as it was too annoying for words)
  • Lest Innocent Blood be Shed: The Story of the Village of Le Chambon and How Goodness Happened There – Philip Halie (good and important story about a French village who rescues Jewish people during WWII, but waaaaaay too many deep philosophical questions for my not-very-philosophical head when I wasn’t expecting it.)
  • And a couple of novels thrown in there…

Total number of books read in May:  7

Total number of pages read:  1104 pages (av.221) (April was 2723 – wow. I don’t  know what happened for this month’s puny total. I think I am becoming really good at piddling around doing nothing in particular.)

Fiction/Non-Fiction: 3 F and 2 NF (plus 1x play)

Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 3 library books and 4 owned books (including the DNFs), 2 e-books.
