Despite the fact my blog has been suffering from my lack of posts I have been reading. Unfortunately I have yet to finish all the books I set out to read in June. Instead I've read a lot of books I didn't plan to read.... Yeah... So maybe that's what summer is for -- making plans and then dropping them altogether to do something entirely different.
End of May to mid-June Reads that I plan to review:
* Gerald And Elizabeth by D. E. Stevenson
* The Penderwicks at Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall
* The Red House Mystery by A. A. Milne
* Chaff in the Wind by Edna Walker Chandler
* The Demon in the House by Angela Thirkell
* Taken At the Flood by Agatha Christie
So that's what I have been reading, what has been on my nightstand, but what is currently sitting there waiting to be read?
Carried over from last month's post -- The Passion of the Western Mind by Richard Tarnas. I have less than 2 weeks to complete the first section -- The Greek World View" before our next book club meeting. I'm making slow progress because this is a meaty read and it simply cannot be rushed.
Also, I need to finish Atingone by Sophocles. I have been putting this one off for the same reason I'm dragging my feet in Passion of the Western Mind, I know I should read it. I know I will read it, but it's not a fast read for someone with little attention span. Nevertheless, I will finish it in time. Just wait and see.
And on the side when I'm feeling lazy and unwilling to focus entirely on a challenging read I can be found devouring:
* Crooked House by Agatha Christie
* August Folly by Angela Thirkell
So that's my plan for the next four weeks. We'll see how I do.
What about you? What are you reading this summer? Leave a comment and let me know or link up your own nightstand post at 5 Minutes for Books. Happy reading!!!!
