What Are You Reading…in January?

itsmondayIt’s been a few weeks since I posted for the What Are You Reading meme from Book Journey, so now seems like a good time for a new installment.

I’ve been making all sorts of headway with my science fiction reading.  I’ve managed to dip into just about every type of sci fi I was planning: Pern, Star Wars, Star Trek and two Burroughs books.  I also finally finished Reflections by Diana Wynne Jones, a wonderful collection of essays about storytelling.

On audio, I’m about halfway through Walden by Henry David Thoreau.  It’s a funny thing–sometimes he seems to just drop brilliant gems every two sentences.  Other times he loses me for five minutes at a time.  But overall I’m enjoying listening.

Pat BooksIt turns out to be a good thing after all that I decided to join the L. M. Montgomery reading challenge…after three weeks of sci fi, my excitement was flagging.  So I was all set to jump into Pat of Silver Bush, which is a completely different world.  I’m midway through now, and may or may not (but probably will) go straight on to Mistress Pat.

After that, I expect to  have renewed eagerness for sci fi, so it’ll be back to Star Wars for Darksaber, the next volume of the Callista Trilogy.  And then…more Star Trek or else Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card.

Still lots of good books in the stack!

  1. Ah, Ender’s War. Must re-read that.

    Currently I am reading M. R. James’ The Haunted Dolls House and Other Stories, but I am almost done. Then I will start Charlotte Dacre’s Zofloya, or The Moor.

    I’m reading “One More Day,” by Mitch Albom, which I picked up in the grocery store. (!) I’ve never read “Tuesdays with Morrie,” but I’ve heard of it. This one seemed interesting, so I decided to try it. It’s not great literature, but it’s pretty good so far.
