Reading Update – 5th March 2013

05 Mar

Time for another reading update! I’ve read 11 out of the 30 books on my list, which I think is pretty good going! That’s a third of the list done and I’m feeling a tad more confident now about the rest of the List 🙂 I’ve read some great books this last week and am in a good enough mood, that I think I might even attempt The God of All Things this week! Yes! Might as well be over and done with it – given how long I’ve been putting it off 😛 But I’m seriously considering taking a short ‘reading break’ after – just to clear my head until I start with the next lot of books. Maybe watch a bit of TV for a change 😉 or re-read LOTR or a Hercule Poirot! That’ll freshen me up at once 🙂

Books read on the LIST

  1. Narcopolis – Jeet Thayil 
  2. A Spot of Bother – Mark Haddon 
  3. The Private Lives of Pippa Lee – Rebecca Miller
