Another surprise was how often I turned to children’s books. Of the thirty books I’ve read this month, only four were adult reads: How to Be an Explorer, The Man in the Picture, Gods Behaving Badly, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. All four were great reads. Hopefully this month will be much better for adult fiction since I have a ton of books that are due at the library and I’ve run out of renewals.
I’ve only read five short stories this month for the 100 Shots of Short challenge:
“Farewell, Navigator” – Leni Zumas
“Dragons may be the way forward – Leni Zumas
“The Everything Hater” – Leni Zumas
“Heart Sockets” – Leni Zumas
“Lucky Chow Fun” -Lauren Groff
In December I joined The Year of Readers challenge. I pledged $1.50 of my own money for each book I read throughout 2009 to two great charities: 828National and FirstBook. Every month I’m alternating between the two charities. January was the month for First Book.org. With all my reading I earned $45! Next month I’m going to try to match that for 826National.
Currently I have four books going:
Tigerheart by Peter David
My One Hundred Adventures – Polly Horvath (middle school fiction)
Chicken Feathers – Joy Cowley (middle school fiction)
The Butcher and other erotica – Alina Reyes
Hopefully I can get all four read before next Sunday.
What are you reading this week?
