Looking back, I had a pretty good reading month. Amazing reads with March Volume III and then with A Man’s Search for Meaning, and just some happy reading time. The two books below with no blog posts (Dogs of a Certain Age/Thorne and Something New/Knisley) were also good reads, but for some reason I could not muster the time or energy to put blog posts together about them.
The Dogs book was very *adorable* with its studio portraits of elderly dogs in all their silver jowly splendor. (I am a sucker for older dogs…) And Lucy Knisley’s graphic novel continuing her reports on her life (now married) was really fun and positive (as are most of her books). If you liked Relish or any of her other works, then you’ll like this one in which she gets ready for her wedding (trying to do lots of DIY/Pinterest-influenced things) and how that works out for her. (I think she’s now pregnant and is working on a graphic novel about that whole experience now…)
Only one fiction read (out of the six total books) so that was interesting. I’m really just into facts at the moment (compare with the U. S. Presidential debates with an emphasis on one candidate in particular)…
So – to the books:
I read the following titles (with links to blog posts about said book where there is one):
- A Man’s Search for Meaning – Victor Frankl
- All Involved – Ryan Gattis (2015)
- Housekeeping vs. The Dirt – Nick Hornby (2006)
- March Volume III – John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell (2016)
- Old Faithful: Dogs of a Certain Age – Nick Thorne (2015) (no blog post)
- Something New – Lucy Knisley (2016) (no blog post)
Total number of books read in August: 6
Total number of pages read: 1,392 pages (av. 232).
Fiction/Non-Fiction: 1 fiction / 5 non-fiction (including 2 graphic novels)
Diversity: 1 POC
Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 5 library books and 1 owned book. Two ILL and one e-book.
Oh, and the book titles that I brought home from the FoL Library Sale… 🙂
