April was an excellent month for reading, which really surprises me as it was just as busy as the previous three. Still, somehow in spite of my very hecitc schedule I was able to enjoy several books waiting on my nightstand as well as a few others that I happened upon. I have a work trip this weekend, you never know, I might polish off one more book before the month's end.
What currently sits on my nightstand and will be read in the coming weeks:
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I know very little about this book, yet it seems that every avid reader I know has read this book. It's also one of those books that is referenced in other books. I've decided I need to read it.
The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope. Confession. I've never read Trollope. Yet one cannot be a reader of classics and not read at least one book by this author. Thankfully I get to kill two birds with one stone and read this book as part of my book club. It's nearly 800 pages and I have until June 2nd to finish it. This is probably going to take up all my reading time in May, but I'm still excited. I know this won't be nearly the challenge that The Brothers Karamazov was back in January.
Of course, if there is still time left once I finish reading these two book, then I might pick up one or both of the following:
