Reading Notes, 7/15

Finished Reading


Currently Reading (or not)

Yeah, it’s been a couple weeks and I’ve been flailing around with my reading. I started both The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers and The Pandora Principle by Carolyn Clowes for #Trekathon, but I’m not getting along with space opera at all. So, I think I need to switch out a few books. My back-up for Nurse Chapel (read a book with a face on the cover) will be The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo by by Zen Cho. After that, we’ll see what I feel like next. Still progressing on Green Shadows, White Whale by Ray Bradbury and Heretics of Dune by Frank Herbert.

I’m not going to participate in the CCSpin this time around. I’ll stick to my next planned classic, The Mysteries of Udolpho, for August.

Tales from an Unwieldy Library

I’ve finished adding my Kindle books to LibraryThing, though they are not very well tagged. I have 1,046 books in my library, 561 of those are unread. So that’s a few books. If I finish the books above, well, that will make it 559. (The Bradbury is a reread.)


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.

  1. I have fond memories of reading Green Shadows, White Whale almost “on location.” I wasn’t in Ireland, but I was in the middle of the Irish Sea (on one of my visits to the Isle of Man) ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Katherine,
    we like the Bradbury and the Herbert, but we never came across Zen Cho.
    We are just reading
    Rebecca Solnit “The Faraway Nearby” – we like this novel very much
    Thomas Asbridge “The First Crusade” – we like middle eval literature (our dear Master wrote his thesis about illuminated manuscripts of the Calolingan Times)
    We just finishe Yoko Ogawa “The Housekeeper and the Professor” – fun for everyone who is interested in mathmatics, and P.D. James “Death in Holy Orders” because it’s set where we live.
    Thanks & cheers
    The Fab Four of Cley
    ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
