|Should Be Reading|
What I’m reading now:
Old Filth by Jane Gardam ---I have been reading this book for one and a half months. I like the story fine. I like the writing style. I have no idea why it feels like drudgery to read it. But I am within 40 pages of the end and I WILL FINISH IT TODAY.
What I’m listening to now on audiobooks:
The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood---a dystopian novel in a very Atwood-ish style, which means that it is a rather joyless story with brilliant writing. I’d probably do better reading this book than listening to it since I've been listening to it for a week and I'm not even half way done.
What I recently finished reading:
They Called Themselves the KKK by Susan Campbell Bartoletti---very factual, interesting, and disturbing book about the genesis and evolution of the Ku Klux Klan. It is immaculately researched and has lots of illustrations and photos.
What I will be Reading Next:
The Man in the Wooden Hat by Jane Gardam---the companion book to Old Filth. This is this month’s book club selection so I definitely need to finish it by next Wednesday. Best get right on it.
What I Wish I Had Time to Read:
Monster of Men by Patrick Ness---It is sitting right here, right next to me, calling out to me. I am anxious to dive in to this book, the third book in the Chaos Walking Trilogy.
