Do you ever feel as if your reading life is fractured? I always have at least three books going at the same time…an audiobook to listen to while driving or knitting, a Kindle book, and a library book. Perhaps because of the bitter cold, dreary, and confining weather we are having, plus the dismal state of the union at the moment, I find that my reading life is definitely fractured! I am reading 7 different, very diverse, books at the same time ! And I’m enjoying them all!
- Audiobook: Listening to The Silkworm, by Robert Galbraith (although I took a break from it to listen to the newly published In the Great Green Room–The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown, by Amy Gary.
- Kindle Books: I am in the middle of The Two Towers, by J.R.R. Tolkien, my re-read of his Lord of the Rings trilogy. I am also reading Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott, for Roof Beam Reader’s Classics Book-a-Month Club. I started Wild Seed, by Octavia Butler, last month then set it aside to start Little Women…but I keep going back to it. And then I pre-ordered the book The Meaning of Michelle, by Veronica Chambers, and it came in last week, so I started it, too!
- Library Books: When we had a break in the stormy, icy weather last week, Hubby and I walked to the library. I came home with too many books, and am enjoying a knitting book called Seamless (or Nearly Seamless) Knits, by Andra Knight-Bowman and a gardening book, Sissinghurst: Portrait of a Garden, by Jane Brown.
Definitely fractured reading, and It’s a little like a reading frenzy, too. Does this ever happen to you, or am I completely losing it in the middle of the very January January??
