July through November I did not read as much as I usually do. This may have been due to the increased amount and different type of reading that was required for one of my university units. Also, I found I was just too tired to read before sleeping, which is when I do most of my recreational or reading for pleasure.
However, I still managed to read the following, not necessarily in this order:
- Helga’s Web, Jon Cleary
- In a Dry Season, Peter Robinson
- Moon Island, Rosie Thomas
- A Simple Life, Rosie Thomas
- Sea Glass, Anita Shreve
- Hiam, Eva Sallis
- Riven Rock, T.Coraghessan Boyle
- The Twins, Tessa De-Loo
- The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream, Paulo Coelho
- Playing for Pizza, John Grisham
- Reader’s Digest Select Editions including: You Belong To Me by Mary Higgins Clark, Archangel by Robert Harris, Cloud Nine by Luanne Rice, and “N” is for Noose by Sue Grafton
- The Stallion, Harold Robbins
- The Tumbled House, Winston Graham
All of which will be wild released over the coming week as I feel I have some serious BookCrossing to catch up on.
Most of the books were obtained through the local library as discards or donated to raise funds for the local library or from Grandad’s box of books.
Currently making my way through Moran v Moran. Definitely not something to read between mandatory or necessary reading for research and study. The book was donated to the library fundraiser and has newspaper cuttings inserted as bookmarks, and various sentences underlined. Definitely will look at some ‘lighter’ reading after this one.
