I've been absent from here for almost a month. I've been down and out with pneumonia after two preceding weeks of regular virus and sore throat and bronchitis. Was so wiped out the first week with the pneumonia that I couldn't even read for more than 10 minutes without becoming exhausted. Wow! Quite a new experience that I don't want to ever replay. Anyway, here are the few I've read in the last couple of weeks.
#14 The Trouble With Cats by Martha Freeman
Another children’s book which I read to add to my recommendations for children’s books on one of my blogs. Nice book!
#15 Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately
Novel written by a Boston nurse who is also a humanitarian. Story reflects some of her observations and experiences.
#16 A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
We chose this for our book club this year as it is the 60th anniversary of this classic. It was also the 1963 Newberry Award winning book. The story is science fiction and time travel and appeals to many adults as well as preteens and teens.
Well, definitely missed my goal. Following the last post, I ended up becoming ill again with what seemed like pneumonia complications. Ended up in the hospital followed by recovery at home with atrial fibrilation. Not pleasant. Haven't been able to focus on reading which is so unlike me. Hoping that with the meds and recovery time I'll get back to reading more. Started Yes Chef by Marcus Samuelson yesterday on my Nook.
I haven't updated in a while. I really just got plain lazy towards the end of the year. I started another five books over the last month that I just haven't been able to get myself to finish.
37. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
38. Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice
39. The Strange Case of Finley Jayne by Kady Cross
40. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
41. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
42. The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan (If anyone's interested in this one I suggest doing a little research before you jump into it, it's heavy stuff and I wish I had known a bit more about it before I started)
43. Jeannie Out of the Bottle by Barbara Eden
44. On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan
A few books short of my goal of 50, but still way more than the 15 or so books I read last year!
