The books were the usual mélange of genres, although my consumption of mysteries has dropped dramatically lately. This is a bit alarming because more than half of my TBR books are mysteries and as you may remember I am trying to deplete some of that pile. However, I just haven‘t felt like reading one for a while, so that‘s that.
Two of the month‘s books were rereads: the Father Brown books. Several years ago I acquired e-book editions (text files actually) of that whole series and printed them out and bound them into books as part of my bookbinding class. I had recently read them when I did this, so they stood unread on my shelves for a number of years until I decided it was time for a reread. I have been reading them while I eat my breakfast and dinner, and usually finish 1-2 stories per day.
Books I may finish before the end of the month include The Last Great American Housewife by Staci Greason, The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters and Stay the Night by Lynn Viehl.
