nephews - reading time

august is here
summer is almost over

i could cry

instead,
let’s talk books

i don’t read as often
as i’d like
and i made the decision
this year that
there are so many, many, many
books & reading materials
out there
that should it not hold my attention
i will dump it.
life is too short
time is too scarce
to muddle through shitty words

currently on my kindle:
Guy in Real Life by Steve Brezenoff
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

currently on my bookshelf:
On Such a Full Sea by Chang Rae-Lee
Califia’s Daughter by Leigh Richards (reread. because good books deserve to be read over & over & over again)

online:
1K project
networking for introverts
woman in the rainy season

and you.
what are you reading?

  1. Calvin and Hobbes! So adorable.
    I’ve been hip deep in the dystopian weeds this summer and just can’t seem to stop; first Margaret Atwood’s “MaddAddam” trilogy and now Hugh Howey’s “Wool” series.

  2. I cannot understand the hype around The Goldfinch. She could have left out a hundred pages of drug scenes and it would have been a better book. It also tested my “willing suspension of disbelief” to its limit. Let me know what you think.

    1. i don’t find her writing bad, but i do find her ability to keep my attention bad… i will keep on keeping, only because i paid for the book (the library had a HUUUUUUGE waiting list)

  3. I am curious to see what you think of The Goldfinch. I am stuck about a third of the way in and have not made myself read more…so drawn out! Next on my list is California by Edan Lepucki. I am in line for Califia’s Daughter at the library per your suggestion. Looking forward to reading it!

    1. i regret to say that i’ve broken it up with it. my coworker is reading it and she’s giving me the cliff’s notes version.

  4. I LOVE Calvin and Hobbes! I don’t make time for reading….. I seriously don’t know where that time would come from. I spent my entire childhood reading since TV was a no no and I just love books. I guess if it’s important enough I will make time!
