You guys, it’s almost fall!
*dances a happy jig*
So what am I reading in September?
I know it’s shocking coming from me, the girl who would determinedly read to the end of any book, no matter how much I disliked it, but there are a few books I’ve put down and never finished. It’s too soon for me to attempt War and Peace again, I still haven’t recovered from my attempt earlier in the year, so my never-finished book for 2011 is:
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Isn’t it funny that most of my never-finished books are “classics?” Yes, curious indeed.
Coincidentally, BNW is on the frequently challenged list and September 24-October 1, 2011 is Banned Books Week, so OF COURSE I am going to
read MORE banned/challenged books!
Here is a list from the ALA, if you would like to join me.
I used a random number generator and came up with:
It’s so Amazing by Robie Harris
Which will take me all of five minutes to read, so I picked another:
Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
But, alas, school also means doing homework and I’ve again fallen behind on books I’ve bought and/or gotten in the mail, so I better tackle my
bookshelf before it falls over and before it’s time for my local library to have their semi-annual book sale in October.
I’m mega excited about Tracey Neithercott’s idea for a FALL BOOK CLUB! Go check out her post, add some suggestions, vote for a winner when the time is right, etc., etc.
Happy reading, everybody!
