Reading in Progress – June 2018

1

Lately I feel like a helium balloon barely tethered to the ground. Life is moving much faster than I’m used to. New job still takes some time to get used to and I even have a trip to Japan coming up soon!

While I was trying to catch up to some reading I managed to get started on quite a few different books. They are all in different states of unfinished reading. I’m going back to using my Reading in progress posts as a wall of shame for all the books I’m dragging along for months instead of finishing reading.

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

It took me ages to find the picture of this book in my media library. It has been almost a year since I borrowed it. I have neglected it badly!

How to Talk About Books You Haven’t Read by Pierre Bayard

This book caught my attention for obvious reasons. I’m actually thinking of suggesting it to my book club friends. I read trough the third of it but kinda stopped due to some other priorities and even had to pay library fine for it…

Serpent’s Kiss (Elder Races, #2) by Thea Harrison

I grabbed this book from the shelf when I wanted to read something urban fantasy style I like so much. It was supposed to be a respite from all those other books I’m catching up on for book club or other projects. After the initial two reading sessions it started to gather dust by the bed…

The Bridge on the Drina by Ivo Andrić

This is a book club reading assignment due in few days. The writing style is good but I have issues with the language and many words I’m not familiar with. My pace is slow even though I’ve given lots of attention to this book lately.

Even with all of those above being seriously neglected I have piled up few more books that I’m planing to add to the Reading in progress category. More on those in the next post!
