What I read: August and September 

Hello, my friends. I’d love to tell you that my blogging silence has been because I’ve been reading all the books but I’ve just been knackered. I emerge from the summer and early fall slightly less knackered. Is it the yoga, is it the iron supplements or is it having had a visit from my mum?

Anyway, books. Way back in August I reset the font on my kindle to a dyslexic font and it is the bees knees. So much easier to read that in August I read three books! 

  • Deep South by Paul Theroux
  • Journey to Munich by Jacqueline Winspear
  • At Betram’s Hotel by Agatha Christie 

All three were excellent in their own ways. Come September I started Battle Cry Freedom, and I’m still reading it. I ended up alternating chapters of BCF and Nemisis by Agatha Christie. So far on my reading of all the Miss Marples this one is my favorite, mainly because Miss Marple has to content with a nasty case of mansplaining. 

On the audiobook front I finished A Career of Evil by Robert “JK Rowling”Galbraith and Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery. I got the octopus book because of my two not-so-little octonauts, and I was practically in tears. Octopuses are so smart, and love escaping. I won’t look at them in the aquarium in quite the same light.

    i have “deep south” in my pile but haven’t managed to start it yet; other books keep moving in and getting rudely in front.
