For this month I already have a stack of books I want to read for either book groups or challenges but as is always the case other books usually cut in line so we’ll see how this goes. Some of the books I’d like to get to this month are:
The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad. Not only is this the selection for one of my book groups but I just found out about the Oxford University Press Book Blog. They have a World’s Classics Discussion and guess which book they are discussing now? Yep, The Secret Agent.
Another book I’d like to read this month is The Mermaids Singing by Lisa Carey. This is the upcoming selection for the Written Word book group. I’ve missed participating the last few times but I just received the book from BookMooch so maybe I will read it in time.
Finally, as far as book groups are concerned I really would like to read the Slaves of Golconda selection for July which is Sleepless Nights by Elizabeth Hardwick
I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to finish the Chunkster or the Once Upon a Time challenges, but hey there are always new challenges to try right? Here are some that I’ve just heard about and sort of want to join but am trying to resist:
The Summer Poetry Challenge
The Summer Reading Challenge – Part 2
The Book Awards Reading Challenge
So there you have it. Those are some of my reading goals. If only all the other books in my stacks didn’t seem so appealing as well. Ha. Anyone have major book plans for this month?
