When I had more time to read, I used to have about 6 to 8 books going at the same time. This was never a problem and I did like to be able to read sections of a books consistently with group reads keeping me on track. But sometime in the last three years or so, it’s all gone wrong. Suddenly, I wasn’t finishing books I started, yet I would still pick up new ones to begin. Which, of course, has left with me with a number of books I’ve begun but never completed. Not good.
NUMBER 6 !
Which means that I’ll be reading …….
With everything going on of late, instead of targeting specific books to read, I’ve preferred to let my reading tastes wander to what I feel like reading at a particular moment. Which makes me wonder with great puzzlement, why I’m choosing to participate in the recent Classics Club Spin. Perhaps it’s because I’ve hardly focussed at all on my list. But it’s more likely peer pressure from all you other bloggers who have jumped right in. So here I go!
These crazy times seemed to be the perfect time to re-start my Deal Me In Challenge and perhaps not so surprisingly, my card-choice led me to a very crazy poem, The Mad Gardener’s Song. Lewis Carroll is well-known for his zany poetry and stories and this one is no exception. It also lines up with my activities and planned activities of late …. gardening. Of course, there is no connection to the mad gardener and me. Perish the thought! I’m quite sane. Really ….! 😂😜
Books on my Spring TBR was a Top Ten Tuesday topic and probably one I missed this year, however I thought I would resurrect it, for my own interest as well as yours. Why my own? Well, I have very little idea what I plan to read this spring. As the death of my mom has left me somewhat lost and meandering and the pandemic has changed life considerably, I’ve found that I don’t feel like concentrating on the books I usually choose. And while I haven’t officially chosen any particular book, today I thought I’d wander through my bookshelves to see what catches my eye. My choices might even be a surprise to myself, lol!
