I’m keeping things fairly light and easy this time around, primarily because I’m dealing with a fractured elbow, a sprained or strained wrist, and a bunch of severely pulled muscles. One would think that being laid up with an injury would give me even more time to read than usual, and that may be true. But I find myself immensely distracted and I’m having a hard time settling my mind and focusing on book reading.
So for Spring Reading Thing 2012, my goal is to finish the three books I’m currently reading, to read four additional novels, and to read two additional nonfiction books.
Here are the specifics.
Books to finish:
New books to read:
A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley
Nick of Time (A Bug Man Novel) by Tim Downs
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: Book I: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood
Death Comes to Pemberley by PD James
Note to Self: The Discipline of Preaching to Yourself by Joe Thorn
Rumors of Water: Thoughts on Creativity & Writing by L. L. Barkat
I usually love to do a more elaborate post, with a picture of each book’s cover and a little blurb about why I chose each book, but sadly, that’s a lot harder to do in my current state. Perhaps when my arm is better, I’ll come back and add to this post.
In the meantime, each book is linked to Amazon, so feel free to click over and explore my selections.
And don’t forget to check out the other Spring Reading Thing 2012 participants! You can find them at the official launch post. Happy Spring Reading!
