Reading Long Books

A Place of Her Own, by James C. Christensen

It’s been a long time since I read a long-ish book, and now I’m immersed in two of them at the same time. Both books are on my Classics Club list, but I didn’t plan to read them right now, let alone at the same time. However, one was chosen as my Classics Club Spin book, and the other one was for a fun read-along challenge that I simply couldn’t resist. So here I am, reading one chapter a day for The Three Musketeers read-along, and listening to the audiobook of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court while doing chores or driving in the car. And I’m enjoying them both!

    My current books a bit a long-ish, too. However, I’m so engrossed in them, I don’t mind one bit!

    Lovely blueberries in your header. We passed a few farms on our way from Corvallis to Junction City last week. I love their autumn hues.

      Thanks, Les. I love the blueberry farms around Forest Grove. There are a number of brand new blueberry fields that were just planted. It was amazing to watch them plant such large fields! And they brought in a mountain of sawdust to mulch around them.

      Thanks, Fanda. I can do some chores while listening, but if anything requires much thinking or problem solving, I find myself totally distracted from the story and have to go back and re-listen to that part!

    Hi Robin. It’s nice you’ve got one physical book and one audiobook, so the reading dovetails with your life, when you’re out & about. I do the same with some projects, for a similar effect and fun. Hope you have a fruitful experience.

    The last book I read was a little short, but the one I’m reading now is over 500 pages. I’m also reading one that’s almost 600. Big books are awesome, if they can keep my attention.
