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!)
