I haven’t updated this log for a while…again.
It seems that lately, however, I’ve managed to find a slightly better balance and I’m managing to read a bit more. A bit on the train and a bit during the lunch break.
If I’m lucky, I even have five to ten minutes before bed.
I have to say I’m quite happy for it and I’ll enjoy until it lasts.
I won’t put here, as I did before, a comment for each book I’m reading as it would be repetitive. Also there won’t be many news, as one of the new books I’ve started absorbed completely my attention, so the other 10 books I was readying are more or less at the same point!
I’m very sorry, now that I think about it, but I haven’t kept the promise I made of not starting new books. It really seems I cannot resist to the charm or obsessive-compulsive feeling more likely!
So following is the listing of the books I’ve finished from last time and also the status of the ones I’m now reading.
Outlander– It’s one of the new entries. I’ve mentioned it in my previous post, so I won’t get lost in the summary of the story. Mostly because TV shows really sticks to the book, although book –of course- is slightly better!
So for this I’m at page 344 on 863.
Hunger– Here no news, I’m at page 234 on 586.
Irish ghost stories– Here no news, I’m at page 42 on 1102.
Wizards first rule– Here no news, I’m at page 114 on 764.
Memorie del sottosuolo– I lost it momentarily, probably it’s in a bag somewhere, but I’ll find it for the October update! I’m a shame, I know!
Delitto e castigo– Here no news, I’m at page 56 on 684.
Ancient appetites – Finished, I’ve started the second volume:
The wisdom of the dead man – I’m at page 37 on 469.
A Song of Ice and Fire – volume three- Here no news, I’m at page 192 on 569.
The maze runner– Finished! Loved it. I’ve started the second volume:
The scorch trials– I’m at page 54 on 359.
City of bones – Another new entry. I’m at page 12 on 506.
The book thief – Another new entry. I’m at page 58 on 554.
Enciclopedia. Tutta la seconda Guerra Mondiale-volume 1– Another new entry to be considered a reference reading as it’s an encyclopedia on the Second World War. I’m at page 53 on 493.
Madame Bovary– It’s lost in the phone somewhere but haven’t touch it from the last time!
The ghost pirates– Finished. Loved it!
Carmilla– Finished as well. Love it so much!
Dracula– Audio book. Finished as well!
Shadowmagic– On going, cannot exactly quantify as it’s an audiobook too!
Actually, writing the whole thing down, I realized I’ve more on my plate than I thought, and it was a lot already. 12 books, one PDF, 1 Audio book…no seriously, I have to stop! It’s getting out of hand!
Question is: how do you stop?
Is there anybody else with this obsessive compulsive push in starting new books?
The funny bit is that I don’t mix them up at all, and my friend keep asking how do I do. I have no clue. Can someone, maybe having the same habit, explain this to me?
I’ll leave out the considerations for a hopefully shorter post in October…who am I trying to convince here?
Oh and before you walk the plank, ye scurvy dogs: Happy talk like pirate day!!!!
