B is for Books ~ of Course

This week it is the Letter B. My friends Cristi and Meg are co-hosting Blogging Through The Alphabet. Of course with the letter B, I have to blog about books! I have not been reading nearly as much these past couple of months as I was earlier this year. Advent is starting for New Calendar Orthodox and I plan to read more during the Nativity Fast.

So what am I reading?

I have about 9 books on my Goodreads currently reading shelf but I am only going to list the ones that I am more actively reading. By that I mean that I have actually picked up and read at least a few pages in the last couple of weeks.

I did borrow Immortal Reign from the Kindle Owner’s Library and I started it. I think I am on Chapter 2. If you didn’t catch my blog post from earlier in the week you can read my thoughts about Immortal Plague which is the first book of the series.

I also am still working through The Sorcerer's Stone, the first book in the Harry Potter series. My goal in 2016 is to re-read the whole series. I just got started in 2015.  Ok. Ok.  I got started in 2015 and then decided I wanted to make it a goal. I am in the middle of Chapter 14. For those of you familiar with the book it’s the chapter about Norbert, the baby dragon that Hagrid hatches from an egg.

One day while I was out and about but didn’t have a book with me or my Kindle so no reading the borrowed book, I opened the Kindle app on my phone and started reading another Jeeves and Wooster novel by P. G. Wodehouse. This time it’s Right Ho, Jeeves. According to Kindle/Goodreads I am a whopping 4% complete. Haha.

My Plan for reading during Nativity Fast:

Maybe just maybe I’ll finally finish the last bit of Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. I’ll also dust off the Orthodox Veneration of the Mother of God. This is a book I started last spring as part of my Great Lent reading but never really got it started. I also plan to get back to reading War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells.  Tailorbear read it for school but we haven’t finished our discussions because I haven’t finished it yet.

What are you reading?

  2. I'm also in the middle of War of the Worlds. I have a ton of non-fiction books on my kindle, but I would really like to find another non fiction book to get sucked into just for fun. I read a murder-mystery last week (Jonathan Kellerman's The Murderer's Daughter). I'm not sure I'd recommend it, but he's one of my favorite authors if I'm just reading for fun.

  3. I love books!! I keep meaning to read Wodehouse, but I never have, and I think I'd really like it. Currently I'm reading The Phantom of the Opera (almost finished) and am going to pick up The Fatal Tree by Stephen Lawhead again. And I have a whole pile of books to get started on - not sure which will be next!
