Like a lot of people I know, I keep track of the books I read each month. Mostly, I just update Goodreads (you can follow me on there). But I thought it’d be a fun feature to add to the blog.
Unlike the newsletter, where I recommend a killer series of books, this “Monthly Reads” series is going to focus on what I’ve actually read during the course of the previous month. You can check out last month’s list right here.
At the end, I’ll also include some great articles I’ve read this month about books.
Alright, so away we go.
MONTHLY READS: BOOKS
I didn’t struggle as much with my reads this month except in the past 2 weeks. I managed to plow through three books in two weeks, which was great. And then these last two weeks I got stuck. It’s not because I wasn’t into reading, it’s more of a combination of getting swamped with work stuff for my real life job as a freelance writer. Plus spending way too much time on Twitter before bed which is typically my reading time.
As you might have read, I am working on a project where I have 2 genres of books that are my ‘must reads’ each month (in addition to whatever I read). One is a classic book (written before 1950) and the other is a book written by a non-American author about non-American places and life.
Ah the struggle continues. I managed to sneak in a book about Scotland (my first read for the month) for the non-American squared stuff. But came up with a big zero on the classics. I’m going to keep going but I might opt to include just one of these options each month.
