Wrapping Up May 2010
Before I go any further with stats and whatnot, I feel like I have to explain myself and my lack of completed books. At the beginning of May I started reading Anna Karenina knowing that it would take me a while to read, but it feels like it’s taking forever to get through. I’ve said this a few times over the last month, but I’ll say it again. I’m enjoying the book, but its never-endingness is making me not want to pick it up. So, even though I had a massive book on the go, I spent less time than usual reading during May.
I also took time away from reading to spend some extra time with family. My sister was in town for a few weeks before taking off again on her adventures. She might maybe be back for Christmas, so I tried to get some sister bonding time in while I could. Then at the end of May hubby & I went away for about a week to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. There was a bit of reading done on this trip because… hubby finally decided to read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone! I think he liked it, because one morning I woke up to find him reading in the dark.
Took up most of my month and still reading:
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Lost in Austen
The Secret Life of Bees
Jane Eyre (BBC 2006)
(I shared notes on the first three here)
*I was featured at Reading With Tequila as part of her “Getting Random With…” feature.
*In anticipation of the tour I’m working on this summer, I’ve started counting down some of the artists I’m looking forward to seeing on it:
How was your May? How do you determine whether or not a month was successful?
