What started out as a solid month screeched to a halt as the Westerns wore me down. It will be a long while before I pick up anything resembling a Western, I’ll tell you that! I finished a total of 6 books, I went into a deep slump and that is all I can say about it. I watched a lot more TV than I’ve done in a long, long time. Favorite book of the month was actually one of the Westerns, that is The Shootist by Glendon Swarthout, loved it – a great surprise. Least favorite was another Western – Train Dreams by Denis Johnson. I can’t even remember what that book was about, a waste of time.
A great accomplishment is reading my first Jules Verne – Journey to the Center of the Earth. I was not a big fan of it but I can see how many modern plot stem from his ideas.
- The Shootist by Glendon Swarthout
- The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
- Hunted by Meagan Spooner 1/2
- Train Dreams by Denis Johnson
- Hoseman, Pass By, by Larry McMurtry
- Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne 1/2
Overall, not a good reading month at all monthly because I lost all want to read the last 2 weeks. How was everyone your month? Hopefully you read better stuff than me!
