It's week 44 in our 52 Books Quest and this month is Non Fiction November. I failed with my non fiction reading this and have probably only read one non fiction book. Will have to rectify that next year as I have a lot of interesting books on the shelves.
I restarted Archangel’s Light because I always read too fast the first time because I just have to know what’s going to happen. And now on to my slow, absorb and savor read. On my nightstand - this month’s fictional librarian Raymond Ambler in Con Lehane’s 42nd Street Library, my non fiction reads Letters to a Young Poet by Rilke, followed by Letters to a Young Writer (Inspired by Rilke) by Colum McCann.
So my son asked me to read Ready Player Two. I'm on page 75 of Ready Player Two and so far it's pages and pages of world building and explanations.
Me to James: "Does anything actually happen in this story?"
James: "Don't get bored mom, give it a few more chapters."
Me: "Yes, but does anything happen? What happens?"
James: "I can't tell you. Just keep reading to find out."
We watched The Nightmare before Christmas (my first time) and it was actually pretty good. And looking forward to watching tomorrow, the return of Dr Who with the Halloween Special.
