September Reading Plans

It’s been almost three months since I’ve caught my reading plans posts. For shame. Way back in July I made a few reading goals and I had about a 50% success rate with what I planned to read.

My goals were:

What was actually read:

Reading.

In August my only reading goal was The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making for the Reading to Know bookclub. I made it somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 way through the book before I fizzled out. The book itself wasn’t bad (i.e., bad language, inappropriate) but it was more non-sensical that I was able to focus on. Someone else may love it. I just couldn’t follow it.

I also read:

As you can see, I continued the trend of being sucked into HP. To be honest, those made the list because I have read them enough that I can pick them up and read 1-2 pages (if that’s all the time I get) and still stay with the story. For the most part, the month was just too crazy.

That said, of the two new books that I did read, I am glad that I fit in time for both of them. 7 was good. Really good and hard and gave me much to think about. I read this in three days while we were in Chattanooga, in the evenings when we sat in the hotel room. I couldn’t put it down. Still process on this so much and what I will be taking away from it. Hopefully I can blog more on it later. The incourage book club (bloom) is reading through this right now, and on my to-do list to it get over and watch the video discussions of the book.

For September, I would like to read:

Right now, it is hard to make a reading list (for myself) when the days have been so full (and good) that I have had next to zero minutes to sit and read. It just been a busy season! I’d love to participate in Katrina’s Fall into Reading Challenge and may to spur me on a bit more. This Saturday we have zero events on the calendar, besides the normal home-upkeep, pick up a few groceries, etc. I have grand plans of sitting on our patio during a little boy’s naptime and just reading something this Saturday, even if only for a few minutes. We’ll see how that pans out for me. : )

  1. I've given up (again, sigh) on Les Miserables for almost this same reason. I need longer spans of time to read something like that that really requires me full attention. That's why I'm only reading kids' books at the moment. :-)
