so i tried reading the classic Stranger in a Strange Land. i plodded my way to chapter 12 and then returned it... as my post above shows, i started it around July 31st or so, and wow, it was just not grabbing me.

on the other hand, it took me three days to read the most recent Warriors book, Veil of Shadows.

so that's book #23. last year i read 45, so my goal this year is at least 46.... so i'm 1/2 way there. i don't think i'll get to 46, but ya never know... XD

Yeah, that book (Stranger in a Strange Land) was tough for me too. It's just a drier read than I anticipated so I had to be in the right mood to really get into it.

Kinda thinking of removing The Brothers Karamazov from this year's reading list because there's no way I'm getting through it plus finish 2 other 900+ page books and a couple 500+ page books plus do crafty things.
And I haven't really read more than a couple pages in it since 2020 started anyway.

i have a memo app where i list the books i want to get from the library (as well as books i want to buy for myself too), and i've put Stranger in a Strange Land back on there with a note to start at chapter 12. i mean, it was kinda starting to get interesting. so we'll see how it goes.

i also have the books in the Poldark series on my list, as well as some other random books in the series i'm reading (The Hollows, Stephanie Plum. Warriors) that aren't out yet.

the Poldark books are at the library, as well as the two books the series You was based on, so those are on my list... ooh, i might go for those once i'm finally reading my last library book i have out (it's only 2 now! woot!)

i've finished the Parable of the Sower, and am onto a collection of three Warriors stories. then it's Parable of the Talents, the sequel to Parable of the Sower. I've heard there was supposed to be a third book, so i wonder if Parable of the Talents has a cliffhanger. i'll find out soon enough....

Yay!

I have finished absolutely nothing! But may start working my way through some fiction novels by a local author so discuss whether we should have them in the gift shop at the next gift shop committee meeting.

I'm hoping they're pretty easy reads since I only have about 2 weeks until the next meeting. XD
But I'll also have several afternoons free to read them (at least 2 Tuesdays, next Monday, and maybe a Sunday as well)

yaay that you'll have time to read! :)

i have some of my time after my weekend retail job back to read - now that it's not as icky and humid outside again, i can order my lunch at a fast food place that has outside tables, and read during lunch. :)

It probably doesn't bode well for this local author, that I had to put the book down 12 pages in and brace myself because all I could think was "oh dear god, someone hire this woman an editor!" right?
It's like she ran spellcheck, fixed any spelling issues, and went ahead with printing. (She's self-published so I don't actually know how much editing was done, if any, but it needed more.)

And don't even get me starred on all the punctuation. XP
So many unnecessary question marks and semi-colons.

The plot/story, itself, has promise, but it just really needed a lot of editing first.

Not everyone is a particular about grammar and punctuation as I am, though, so today's average reader may not notice it as much as I do.
