Sometimes you simply have too many books on the go at once.. The past weeks would be an example of that for me.
Of course, I am still reading War and Peace. I finally managed to finish the pages I should have read in February, but what do you know.. we are almost at the end of March already!
I am also participating in Kim and Lu‘s readalong of A.S. Byatt’s Possession. As expected, I am also behind on this one. I seem to catch up about a week late each time. However, I am enjoying the book. It was slow at first, but now it is starting to feel damn near perfect. Looks like it might combine everything I usually love in books.
While walking to work each morning and walking home in the evening’s I am listening to Cleopatra’s Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter, narrated by Kirsten Potter. I had very low expectations going into this book, but I’m pleasantly surprised by how many themes it deals with. I have not quite decided how much I am enjoying it exactly, but as I’m nearing the end I definitely do not think I wasted my time on this audio book.
Lately, I have mostly been too tired to do any reading in bed (falling aleep without even opening a book is a new experience for me), but a few nights ago I happened to lie awake for a while and so I started Ten White Geese by Gerbrand Bakker. First book for Dutch Lit Month?
And then yesterday, I also started Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth. I have not exactly made much progress (I am 10 pages in at present), but that’s not for lack of wanting to read this book. I’m just struggling with lots of fatigue lately. I definitely have high expectations for this book and I hope it will not disappoint me.
Come to think of it, five books is not that many. Perhaps it just feels like a lot because I have not had much time to really sit down with a book for a few hours lately.
So what are you reading these days? Are you reading lots of books at once, like me, or are you making your way through one book at a time?
