Books read this month: 4
Books read so far this year: 94
I set myself a goal for September, a goal which I almost decide to conveniently forget to mention, since I failed to complete it. The goal was to read one nonfiction book for every fiction book. It resulted in a pretty slow reading month, since I was trying to finish nonfiction and not starting new fiction. Turns out I don’t love reading nonfiction. So I ended up only finishing one. But hey, I tried. And I will continue to try and read more nonfiction, since I think it’s important to keep learning, but a one-to-one ratio was probably ambitious.
- Death in the Stacks (Library Lover’s Mystery #8) by Jenn McKinlay- I always love these books because they’re about a librarian who solves crime. I don’t solve crime, but I am a librarian. Jenn McKinlay is one of my favorite cozy mystery authors and she delivered another good one here.
- Walt Disney: An American Original by Bob Thomas- Disney has always been a big part of my life and learning more about the man behind the mouse was fascinating. This book was written only a decade after Walt’s death, which made it more interesting to me than if it had been written more recently. By the end I was in tears at the thought of all he accomplished and the profound effect he had on the world of entertainment and the millions of people his work touched.
