Over the weekend, I returned one book to the library, checked out a few more, and honestly, I don’t know how much reading I have left in me before Baby Sister arrives. On the other hand, at that point I will be reuniting with the Kindle for iPhone app and maybe I’ll be doing more reading in my up-at-night sleep-deprived state than I am right now.
It’s hard to tell.
Apollo 8: The Thrilling Story of the First Mission to the Moon by Jeffrey Kluger
Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind & Soul by Ruth Soukup
The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds by Michael Lewis
Moonglow by Michael Chabon
I got to finish two books on vacation and I just kept reading. I don’t know if this is my way of nesting since I cannot actually nest right now or if it is just what I need mentally right now.
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin
Homeward Bound: Why Women Are Embracing The New Domesticity by Emily Matchar
Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman by Lindy West
I got to do some solid reading over Memorial Day weekend, which was nice. I spent most of first nap yesterday updating my holds list at the library, so that I can enjoy a few more books on our vacation, which starts Thursday!
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
Option B by Cheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant
Panic: The Story of Modern Financial Insanity by Michael Lewis
The End of Wall Street by Roger Lowenstein
I can’t say my reading pace is increasing, per se, but at least I’m trying? I’ll also say that 100% of these books took just ages to read.
Settle for More by Megyn Kelly
History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund
All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Anders
Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
bookTrue story: this is probably two months of reading because surprise surprise I just have not had the time. I am hoping to pick it up a bit more in the months before Little Critter arrives but who knows. I probably need to go through my library reserve list to make some updates. If you have suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
Break in Case of Emergency by Jessica Winter
Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
Buffet: The Making of an American Capitalist by Roger Lowenstein
Victoria by Daisy Goodwin
Good news, guys! I am reading again. I think the biggest issue between Thanksgiving and year-end is that I just did not have any time for it, really. Anyway, now I do.I did a final count and in 2016, I read 44 books which is really not too bad, considering I had a baby and all that. I will confess, I probably don’t remember some of the books that I read during maternity leave (or using the Kindle app on my iPhone) as well as I should, but it all counts.
I don’t have any reading goals for 2017. I am hoping that as Critter continues to wake just a bit later and I am able to wake just a bit earlier, it will mean a bit more time for books.
The Girls by Emma Cline
Buffetology by Mary Buffet and David Clark
The Wangs Vs The World by Jade Chang
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
True story: Apparently all of the books I have chosen to read recently have been super long and/or slow. Or both.
This is probably the last group of books I’ll share for the year. With only two-ish weeks left in the year, I’m feeling pretty confident I’ll finish at least one more book (possibly two) but that’s all.
The Perfect Horse: The Daring U.S. Mission to Rescue the Priceless Stallions Kidnapped by the Nazis by Elizabeth Letts
Substitute by Nicholson Baker
Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
While America Aged by Roger Lowenstein
