So, as is quite usual with me, I did not read the things that I suggested that I might do last month…. Surprised?!
I did dip into Coastlines by Patrick Barkham, but found I was not in the mood for it consistently – so that one is still on the reading pile and only partly read. Middlemarch really didn’t have much of a chance – I was not going to be able to concentrate on something that big and complex this month. My head is all over the place for some reason lately, so the reading choices I did make in September made more sense.
I reread some childhood favourites
and then some quick and fun reads from JK Rowling to feed my Harry Potter obsession:
So all in all September turned out to be a fun and slightly frivolous reading month – exactly what I was in need of and I enjoyed all four books in very different ways. Winnie the Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner are just wonderful – I can recite parts of these from memory, but rereading the whole books was just perfect. The charity Harry Potter books were fun and required almost no concentration on my part to get some fun out of them – not the best books in the world, but fun and fast to read.
As for next month? I am craving some non fiction – I am currently reading Agatha Christie’s Autobiography which is wonderful so far. Perhaps I will dive into some of her fiction afterwards, or I might take things down an historical route and read something completely different. Who knows. Maybe I shouldn’t even try and guess what might be next for me on the reading front!
