Another month drawing to an end and I am happy to report I read all three of the books I mentioned in my April Nightstand post! Ah, these little accomplishments in life sometimes make everything seem less stressful.
It's been an extremely busy spring for my family and I. What I expected to be a quiet February through May ended up packed with house-sitting, a family funeral, long-distance travels, home improvement projects, pushing forward in a new business venture my husband started in 2010, child-rearing, and some definite changes in my career. (I'm working more as a consultant than an employee, which means more flexibility come 2012... which is a good thing considering we'll be starting the new year with an addition to our family).
Some how through it all I've managed to keep reading, which for me is important. I want to keep an outlet for my creativity amongst life's general business, even if the business means I don't have always have time to write.
As for reading... I have a very short list for June, but I'm sure as was the case with May I will find additional books to read and will share my thoughts as soon as I can.
For now my nightstand line-up includes:
In addition we are all to read at least one Greek play, Antigone by Sophocles. If time and humor allows I may also read The Histories by Herodotus or another Greek play, but we shall see. Greek literature is a weak area in my reading repertoire and I'm not sure how I'll do.
If time allows I also plan to do some "fun-fluff" reading including:
From there... who knows. There is always some book I have heard of or seen and can't wait to read. In the meantime be sure to check back on a weekly basis as I endeavor to get back into a weekly posting of reviews.
For those of you who have your own nightstand list for June be sure to stop by 5 Minutes for Books and link up your own Nightstand list.
