I've been in a reading lull lately. I'd been in the middle of a book here and there, but so busy with life and classes and sleep(it actually is a necessity, you know) that I continually forgot about the books I was reading. Partly because they were non-fiction, and the one that was fiction was very deep. But then I got my iPod (more on that Wednesday) and re-discovered fiction. And now I have a mountain of books to read and to finish. In case you are just dieing to know the titles of what I will be reading in the coming month, continue reading- this post is for you. :)
The Deadliest Monster- the non-fiction I've been stuck on. It is a really good book, full of meat and now underlinings and boxes and highlighter marks and margin notes. Its just very long and the first non-fiction I've read in a while, proving quite different than fiction.
The Great Divorce- the fiction I've been stuck on. Again, so far it is really good and thought provoking, but when Lewis isn't writing for children I find he uses words that are quite large and thoughts that are quite big. This is a required reading for my Christian Formation class, but not for a couple months yet. What can I say? It was a Lewis, and I just couldn't wait!
Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase- I borrowed an MP3 file of this from my library. A service I am really growing to love. I never really read Nancy Drew as a child (being more of a Trixi Beldon fan...). I read a few of the mysteries, but never got hooked- until after watching the newer movie this summer. My curiosity has been perked, and they had this copy ready to be 'checked out', so I did.
The Witch of Blackbird Pond- I remember reading this one years ago for home-school, but I don't remember too much about it. I was telling a friend about it the other day, and was surprised at all the random tidbits I did remember. This is also in an audio version.
If I get through most of the books above in the coming 31 days, I will pull 'Eat This Book' from my bookshelf. I've read the first couple pages, but had to stop when I realized I could only handle one non-fiction title at a time. I eagerly wait for the feast to begin.
What are your reading plans for October?
