Weekly Reading Roundup
September 9, 2013 11 Comments
First week of school for the boys, they seem to be fine. I’ve been busy editing, had a few people take up the offer of a free edit of their first chapter. Then I had some new customers. No rest for the wicked!
Also had a fun meeting with my fellow school library volunteers, discussion the roster for the coming year. And then, Wednesday, it started again, handing out many books to whole classes, covering books with plastic protection. Me and the other volunteer didn’t even get time for a proper chat! 🙂
Books I finished in the last week: 1 and a DNF
Goat Mountain by David Vann. A favoriete writer but still a DNF. It was too much and too little for me.
Books I’m reading & planning to read
A Beautiful Truth has been on my to-read-for-this-week for a few weeks now! I hope to finally read it this coming week. But I’m also starting a game on Shelfari, where we read books with certain tags. So, anything can happen…
Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson. Non-fiction. The author (American) travels through his adoptive country, England. Hilarious! 5 stars
The Long Shadow by Liza Marklund. Thriller, a journalist is researching the deaths of a Swedish family in Spain and uncovers a lot more while she’s at it. 4 stars
De huisvriend [Friend of the Family] by Bertram Koeleman [Dutch]. A butler living with a man who likes solitude feels their life is threatened by the arrival of a new friend of the family. 4 stars
Het reservaat [The Reservation] by Liselotte Stavorinus. Thriller, Dutch. A woman moves with her family to a rich neighborhood, where one of the ladies befriends her. But is she really a good friend? 4 stars
