Books: March 2010 [Recap]

March 2010:

  • The Help by Kathryn Stockett (review coming soon)
  • Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder (review)
  • Everything Here is the Best Thing Ever by Justin Taylor (review)
  • Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll (review)
  • The Writing on My Forehead by Nafisa Haji (review)
  • Julie and Julia by Julie Powell (review)

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

Goals:

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).

    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.

    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.

    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.)
