Finals week is over; time for 3 weeks of relaxation and pleasure reading. First up: "The House of Mirth" by Edith Wharton. What are you reading right now?
1984 by George Orwell
The Nature of the Beast by Louise Penny.
I just finished Cutting for Stone, which was very good. Forgot the author though. Now I started the House At Riverton by Kate Morton.
I've got a few Weight Watchers books on my list for the next few weeks.
Einstein, His Life and Universe. Walter Isaacson.
Textbooks...for fun...what have I become...
I brought 8 books from school back home for break to read (won't actually read them all) and 4 are textbooks
I just finished the latest Jack Reacher book, Night School by Lee Child. Not sure where I'm going next. I'll probably get back to Ed Yong's I Contain Multitudes. I see Ebola1 is still working on it, too.
America's war for the greater middle east. It's a military history on US involvement for the last 60 years in the middle east
Wall Street and FDR: The True Story of How Franklin D. Roosevelt Colluded with Corporate America, by Anthony C. Sutton. It's pretty good, I'm about 1/4 into it.
9 Women, 1 Dress
Not reading anything right now, but because schools over for the semester, I have time to go to the library
Crime and Punishment
The Divided City by Luke McCallin
Still recovering from finals haha, but making slow but steady progress on Water for Elephants. Had to put it down from Sept-now, but I'm back at it:)
My gf just bought me Bryan Cranston's book, so I'll be reading that :)
About halfway through Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at the moment.
Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt
That was really good. And sad
Instruction manuals on how to become a Home Inspector
The Mermaid Chair. Almost done with that one and then I'm moving onto All the Light We Cannot See and Wuthering Heights.
I read Wuthering Height over Thanksgiving break...great book! The first few chapters are slow, but once you get into it, you won't be able to put it down. Now I really want to read Jane Eyre.
I just read Jane Eyre last month! We're doing a flip flop haha
Haha, did you like it?
I did! I wish I hadn't seen spoilers before reading it though...the beginning of the book had an introduction written by someone else and they basically gave away the entire book! 😠
The intro to my version of Wuthering Heights did the same thing...fortunately I skipped it.
Yeah, I just started it last night and saw it had an introduction as well. At least I knew to skip it this time!
A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn
Just finished To Kill a Mockingbird
Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat, by Bee Wilson.
'The Innovators' by Walter Isaacson
Stoner by John Williams
That looks really good.
I Contain Multitudes by Ed Yong
Uhhh finals week is NOT over for some people. Please pray for me
The Seven Miracles that Saved America by Chris Stewart
