October 2018 Reading Review.

 

Crikey! That month passed quickly! Let’s check in with how my reading is doing (just out of interest).

The reads for October included:

  • Young Men in Spats – P.G. Wodehouse (1936) F (no blog post but typical Wodehouse)
  • Swing Time – Zadie Smith (2016) (300 pages read but DNF) F
  • The Vampyre – John Polidori (1819) F/Short story
  • The Best We Could Do – Thi Bui (2017) NF/Graphic
  • Convenience Store Woman – Sayaka Marata (2018) F/novella
  • Kaffir Boy – Mark Mathabone (1986) NF/autobio (post to come)
  • The Devil and Sherlock Holmes – David Grann (2010) NF (post to come)

Ongoing project: Just reading. And maybe a jigsaw puzzle. 🙂

So to the numbers:

Total number of books read in September7

Total number of pages read: 1,818 pages (av. 260).

Fiction/Non-Fiction: fiction / 3 non-fiction.

Diversity4 POC. 3 books by women.

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

Future plans include just reading. And maybe a jigsaw puzzle. 🙂

  1. Interesting round-up! Did you find Swing Time heavy going? I’ve just finished White Teeth, another Zadie Smith novel. I enjoyed it, but the style did leave me scratching my head occasionally.

    • I did find it slow progress. I’m not sure why, but I just couldn’t find the enthusiasm to finish it. (Even after about 250 pp!). Ahh well. I just chalked it up to “one of those reads”… :-}
