This September I’m in the middle of reading more than a few books. I’m trying to motivate myself to read more often. Therefore I picked more books than usual. Here are the books I’m reading this September!

A Man for Himself: An Inquiry into the Psychology of Ethics

by Erich Fromm

I’ve been looking for this book for a while now. After I tried the local library where the only copy could not be found I almost gave up on ever getting it. Fortunately, a friend that works in a high school library had a copy for me to borrow. I believe it will take me a bit longer to read this but I’m already happy about it!

Many Bloody Returns

So far I’m progressing nicely with a few stories every day. I mostly like the stories and enjoy them. What made me love this collection from the start is a dedication at the beginning of the book. I will definitely post a review on all the stories and this collection!

Second Nature

by Alice Hoffman

This is actually a second reading for this book. I suggested it for my book club as November reading. I’m looking forward to the discussion. I wonder how will this book affect me the second time I read it. I have quite fond memories from the first time I read it. I cover of Croatian edition!

The Picture of Dorian Gray

by Oscar Wilde

This is another second reading. First time I read it it was in high school. I remember liking it but not much anything else. This time it is also a reading assignment but for a book club in November. I wonder how this discussion will go.

With the rainy weather my reading has turned somewhat more serious. I don’t remember the last time I was rereading two books at a time. Strangely I seem to have avoided all my book series as well! I will have to see how will this affect my reading for September and November.
