What I’m reading:
I’m nearly half-way through The Game of Thrones. I pretty much wish I could quit being a grown-up and read all day. Alas, there are five gigantic books in the series thus far and I must read all of them — NOW. We’ll see how long it takes me to give up cooking, cleaning, and sleep to spend all my time reading about Westeros.
I’ve also embarked on reading Moby Dick with Roofbeam Reader’s read-along. I’m only a few pages in, but I can already tell that 34-year old me will enjoy and appreciate this book far more than 16-year old me!
What’s up next:
If everything goes as planned I should wrap up The Game of Thrones this weekend. Then it is on to my classics club spin, The Professor by Charlotte Bronte, and then the next book in the Chronicles of Barsetshire series, Doctor Thorne.
The Estella Society is back with their second season of the Estella Project. Last month the Estella Society elicited favorite book recommendations from readers and then made a list. The goal is to for other readers to pick 1, 2, or 3 of the titles to read between now and September 1st. I don’t know how many I will fit in this summer, but I know that I at least want to read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.
