With this challenge I promise to give a daily update which will help me keep track of the books I've read and/or the number of pages involved (I'll approximate pages for listening hours for audiobooks.)
Here are my planned reads for the week:
- My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, et al. I only recently added this title to my TBR as it was just recently published. I have a copy on hand and it is due back to the library soon. This is my top priority.
- The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. This was my Classics Club SPIN selection which I was supposed to finish by September 1st. Obviously I didn't meet the deadline but am determined to finish the book. Placed this on my TBR list on Jan 14, 2018.
- The King Years by Taylor Branch. I have been "reading" this collection of essays since April 2018 and want to be done with it. "Reading" is in quotes because I haven't actually read anything in it for months.
- Fear by Bob Woodward. I just got this e-book on the day it was published last week.
- A Gentleman in Moscow by Amar Towles. Added to my TBR on Feb. 14, 2018.
- A Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake. Honestly this one isn't officially on my TBR (on Goodreads) but I have it checked out from the library and is one of the books from the 2019 Mock Printz project. We'll see if there is time to get to this one.
A few notes before I get started:
- I suspect there won't be any trouble finishing The Name of the Rose and The King Years because I am already well into both of those books.
- A Gentleman of Moscow is an audiobook and it is due back to Overdrive soon. When it expires it will magically just disappear from my devise so I may not get to finish it though no fault of my own. But I will start it and see how far I get.
- Fear is about President Trump. It makes me so angry I can only read it in small doses. I don't plan to race through it. Unlikely I will finish it this week.
- I am open to switching my plans mid-stream. Who knows exactly what books I will read/finish/start this week?
Here I go. After posting and signing up on the linky at Wishful Endings, first up, an essay from The King Years and an hour of listening to The Name of the Rose.
