I love when the Nightstand posts occur actually near the end of the month, as they do this time. It’s been a busy month, but let’s see what’s been accomplished on the reading front.
Since last time I have completed:
Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens, reviewed here. Not my favorite Dickens, but I did enjoy it.
The Narnian: The Life and Imagination of C. S. Lewis by Alan Jacobs for both the Reading to Know Classics Book Club for July and the Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge hosted by Carrie, reviewed here.
In addition, last time I had finished The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry but hadn’t reviewed it yet. That review is here. Ended up liking it quite a lot, though I thought it was odd at first.
I also started two books that I set aside due to language. I haven’t decided yet whether to finish them or lay them aside permanently. One was a classic, one was a modern true story that I had really wanted to read.
I’m currently reading:
Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest by Edward T. Welch. Enjoying it very much so far.
Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw.
Things We Once Held Dear by Ann Tatlock
Unlimited by David Bunn
Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin
If I finish those I have a stack of unread books on the bookshelf in my bedroom as well as a lengthy TBR list and a multitude of Kindle books to choose from.
