Immediate Book Meme

Tagging along with MrsDarwin because this is the only kind of post I can manage right now.

1. What book are you reading now?

Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray (readaloud)

2. What book did you just finish?

Helena by Evelyn Waugh
Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder (readaloud)

3. What do you plan to read next?

The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky (gulp)

4. What book do you keep meaning to finish?

Giants in the Earth by O.E. Rolvaag
Introduction to the Devout Life by St Francis de Sales (I keep getting hung in the middle. Then I start over because that seems the right thing to do and then get hung in the middle again.)

5. What book do you keep meaning to start?

Isn't this going to be the list.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
This was the book I was supposed to have read for the last book club meeting. The meeting was last Friday night and I never got to the book. I did read the introduction. Does that count?

Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett
Kyra sent me this book over a year ago. I mean to read it. I want to read it. I keep not reading it.

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
Another book that has been sitting waiting for over a year. Everyone raves about it and I keep not reading it.

Leisure-The Basis of Culture by Josef Pieper
I've also had this one sitting on the nightstand for over a year. I think it probably will have lot to say to me as I am trying to carve out a new way of being from the ground up. Sadly though, I don't seem to have the leisure time to read the book about leisure. 

The Noonday Devil by Jean-Charles Nault
I've only had this one for a month or two so it isn't as bad as the others. I hope it has something to say about how to create habits that can move me through the pitfalls of always being in charge when I have never been in charge and feel the need to hide instead dealing with the myriad of tasks that need accomplished.

6. What is your current reading trend?

My current reading trend is mostly book club selections read in fits and starts of ten minute increments grabbed five or six days apart. And readalouds. Lots of reading out loud to children.

Introduction to the devout life sounds interesting.
