The month is already a third over, how fast times flies. What have I accomplished reading wise?
I have completed two books for the Classic Children's Literature Project so at least I'm on track for this goal, two more to go for the month. I have added reviews for Emil and the Detectives and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe in the reviews section to keep current on this project.
Not on my list of goals I set at the beginning of the month for reads, but I also completed Eva's Story: A Survivor's Tale by the Step-Sister of Anne Frank by Eva Shloss. This was a Library2Go hold from some point that came in, so I had to sneak it into the schedule. Review linked above, these stories always are so heart-wrenching.
I also completed The Great Gatsby this evening; I will let my thoughts on this book brew a bit before I post my review in the next day or two. In general, I can't say that this book gave me any feelings of being transported to the roaring 20's.
On tap for next week is The Stockholm Octavo, Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia and Wide Sargasso Sea and whatever else happens to wander into my view. I will be preparing for the Classic Children's Literature Read-a-Long of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, discussion set for January 24-26.
I have also posted a few new deals over on the deals page, some will have already passed, but you never know what Amazon finds to tantalize your reading desires with.
