6 books again this month – surprise, surprise.
Books I’m still in the middle of:
- East of Eden by John Steinbeck
- You are Here by Christopher Potter
My progress from my January goals.
- More adult lit than YA/MG? Yes (11:7)
- 20% classics? Kind of failing this one. Does Alice in Wonderland Count?
- 15% nonfiction/memoir? Close. 11% but I’m in the middle of a science book
- I haven’t read any of the specific authors I mentioned (Atwood, Allende, and Vonnegut)
- I haven’t read any of the specific books I mentioned (Uglies, The Art of Racing in the Rain, David Copperfield, Betsy-Tacy – last five books, The Age of Innocence).
Alice in Wonderland is absolutely a classic!!
Yep – Alice in Wonderland definitely counts!
And really – you’re sick, but not too sick to post? That’s dedication.
I got a burst of energy last night so this is what I did. It takes far less energy than most things in life.
Great month. I had 6 too. Hope you are enjoying East of Eden.
Definitely count Alice as a classic! 🙂 Looks like you had a great reading month-again, I´m so jealous! 😀 Hope you´re feeling better now!?
I would definitely count Alice as a classic, and one I’ve never picked up but should! Looks like you read some good books this month!
I would count Alice in Wonderland as a Classic. If not for grown-ups it’s certainly a childhood classic.
Looks like you had a great reading month! ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is definitely a classic 🙂
Hope you are feeling better now.
Alice is 100% a classic in my opinion!
You had a good reading month in March. Alice in Wonderland definitely counts. I was sort of trying to read one classic per month but it fell by the wayside when I got halfway through A Portrait of a Lady in February and then put it down. I don’t want to start anymore classics until I finish that one because I know otherwise I may never get to it, but I’m never in the mood to pick it up.
Alice is totally a classic. And I absolutely adored The Help, so I’m glad you read that instead of, say, David Copperfield. (Does that make me shallow? Probably.)
