I spent a lot of time on my August reading list for some reason. I'm having trouble focusing on just what I want to read these days. But I finally settled on nine books, heavy on the woman-y memoirs and fiction this month.
Nonfiction: The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey
Poetry : The Best American Poetry 2011
Memoirs: Sister Mother Husband Dog
The Folded Clock
Garlic and Sapphires
My re-read: Julie & Julia
Fiction: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
Classic: The Great Gatsby
Audio: Mansfield Park
I'm trying to read more library books--I do, after all, work in a library, and both The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and The Great Gatsby are library picks.
This is an ambitious list, but I hope to participate in the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon midmonth (for which I take two or three vacation days to read), so maybe I'll be able to finish these--and even a tenth book.
What are you reading these days?
