Wow, I can’t believe how quickly the first three months of the year has gone by. More importantly, we are less than 12 weeks away before the baby’s arrival! I’ve made quite a bit of progress here at home getting everything ready, I just have a few more projects that I need to get finished before the end of June.
This March, it seemed like I didn’t read as much, with last night’s completion of Sun-Tzu’s The Art of War, I completed 5 books in March, for a grand total of 18 for the year. This month I read these books:
- Michael Crichton’s Prey
- George Orwell’s Animal Farm
- David Eddings’s The Belgariad Volume I
- J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher In The Rye
- Sun-Tzu’s The Art of War
Also in March, I decided to join up in The Classics Club, a classics reading project that Jillian, over at A Room of One’s Own. I put together a list of 103 classics to read, which you can view my selections here. Three of the books I read in March were included on that list, which leaves me with 100 to go.
For April, I’m looking at reading Aristotle’s The Metaphysics which I will be reading with a co-worker of mine to discuss during our lunch periods at the office. I will also be reading Kat Richardson’s Greywalker, a book chosen by my sister for all of us to read in our reading group. I will also continue participating in a read-along with Bleak House. I seem to be enjoying it for the most part. There are some parts of the book that I wish weren’t as descriptive, but with it being so rich in detail, you’re definitely not missing anything.
Aside from those books, I really don’t have too many solid reading plans. I’ve truly enjoyed reading without any set plans this year, and can be open to read whatever, unlike last year at this time, where I was pretty much set on reading Marx’s Capital and other heavy reading endeavors.
What do you have on tap for reading? What have your recently finished?
