Reading report for May 2011

I finished only 7 books in May, just over half of my regular monthly intake. There were a number of reasons for this, not the least that several things conspired to make my myalgia flare up so that it got worse than it has been for several years. This brought on tension headaches which have started getting better since I joined a gym and started taking fitness classes with consist of deep stretching in a hot room – not very pleasant while it is happening, but feels very good afterward.

I’m not worried about reading so little – it’s finally summer and I have my new camera to learn and the season to enjoy.

The Books:
  • Laura Childs: Death by Darjeeling: Murder mystery, cosy.
  • Trevor Corson: The Secret Life of Lobsters: History, popular science
  • Jennifer Crusie: Bet Me: Romance, contemporary
  • Ngaio Marsh: Grave mistake, Photo finish and Light thickens: Murder mysteries, police detective.
  • Amanda Quick: Mischief: Romance, historical

Reading plan for June:

I don’t have one as such, only that I will continue to work my way through my TBR stack. While the end-of-year goal is currently at 820 books, the way I am going now will have the TBR number going down below 800 books for the first time in several years.
