December 2010 – Reading List & Progress Notes – December 11

Reading List Books

I just love going back and resurrecting things that I got too busy to do on my blog.  Reading lists were something that I would put together to take a look at what I had committed to read and what I hoped to read for the month.  They often changed drastically from the beginning of the month to the end, but it was always fun to compare.  So they are coming back, and hopefully they will last longer than a few months this time.  I am aiming to be less busy in the coming months.  I know you don’t believe me…I don’t either, but that is indeed the plan.

Anyway… the last month of the year is a pretty busy one for me. It’s already about a third over and it has been dominated by house guests and holiday parties.  I have also been spending a few days each week with my family, and a lot of my good friends have December birthdays.  That basically means that I haven’t read much of anything.

The only book that I have finished reading so far in December is The Sherlockian, by Graham Moore.  I am about forty pages away from the end of Crossing the Heart of Africa, by Julian Smith.  I hope that I will finish it between tonight and in the morning instead of dragging it out over the rest of the week – but it is a distinct possibility that has nothing to do with the book.  I have only had the time to read a few pages at a time.  Literally, like two at a time.

Still, there are three books that I wish to finish this month, which might be optimistic based on what I just related.

  • Finny, by Justin Kramon
  • The Love Godesses’ Cooking School, by Melissa Senate
  • Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte

    1. It’s one that I read so long ago, that I don’t remember. I haven’t read any of your posts yet, but I have been saving them to go back and read once I have finished! I am up to the part where Jane first arrives at Thornfield Hall.

  1. December is a rough month for me as well. Practically no reading takes place for the first two weeks. I do hope to make up for that while on vacation the week before Christmas though. 🙂

  2. Crossing the Heart of Africa looks really good! We’ve been spending a lot of time with family and going to holiday celebrations too – it’s fun but it certainly does take away from the reading time.

  3. I’ve been reading Jane Eyre off and on for over 6 months!! LOL 😀
    Life is very hectic this time of year, but it sounds liek you’re enjoying the time with friends and family!!

  4. That Love Goddesses book looked a bit like The School of Essential Ingredients. I’ll look forward to hearing what you think about it.

  5. Jane Eyre is a good one–I hope you enjoy it! I have been having a slow month as well, not to mention how abysmal last month was. There is just so much to do!
