I am doing what I did all last year again this year, folks... I can't settle down with one book and then I don't finish anything. I need to work on just focusing and finishing, but I seem to have acquired this terrible habit. Audiobooks are the only thing I listen to without pause, so at least I am finishing those. I have to try and break this habit, though. I will have a whole bunch of started books piled around my house and then I will want to read even less.
Lucy Maud Montgomery Year
I finished and reviewed Anne of Green Gables on audio. That means I finished a short story collection and a novel in January. She wrote 23 novels. I need to pick up the pace a bit. I will be reading after Anne of Avonlea so hopefully that will make things go a bit faster. I might read Kilmeny of the Orchard while listening to Avonlea. We will see.
Graphic Novel Year
In February I am participating in an informal Graphic Novel Month with a group of bloggers. I need to get organized for that this evening. I am sure I am forgetting stuff, but my plans for the month are to continue with my Fables reread, read Volume 2 of Saga, read Volume 2 of Fairest, catch-up in The Unwritten, and finish Y: The Last Man. If I manage to have no unread graphic novels in my house, then I am planning to start a new series. I am considering House of Mystery, which is a Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges (Jack of Fables) creation or Locke & Key, which I have heard lots of good things about.
Other Reading Projects
Yeah, with all the books I am in the middle of, none of them are by Terry Pratchett, Lois McMaster Bujold, or J.D. Robb.
I only finished Anne of Green Gables this week. It works for my own personal Lucy Maud Montgomery Year and for the Audiobooks Challenge.
I am finishing up The Black Flower by Howard Bahr. I had never heard of this book before. I am only reading it for the Literature and War Readalong. There is a good chance I never would have read it otherwise. And, it's actually really good. I imagine in the U.S. it is really easy to acquire, but I could only find an audio copy on Audible. My library didn't have it and none of the bookstore websites I searched carried it. I am glad I took a chance on it. Then, I have no idea what I am listening to after I finish. Anne of Avonlea would be the best plan, but we will see where I stand when I finish.
So. Many. Books! I need to prioritize and finish a few this week.
